The OEM’s recent Annual Golf & Partner Day fundraiser raised over a thousand pounds for a blood cancer research charity.
Dealer Support reports that the event, which took place at the Hanbury Manor Marriott Hotel and Country Club last month, raised £1,100 ($1,429/€1,234) for charity Bloodwise, and saw UTAX invite its top-performing partners to network and socialise on one of the hottest days of the year.
Attendees had a choice of an afternoon of golf or clay pigeon shooting, alongside fundraising competitions, an afternoon barbeque, evening dinner, and awards presentation, which recognised sales achievements in the last fiscal year.
“We continue to focus our efforts on raising money for Bloodwise as the official UTAX (UK) charity,” explained Managing Director Shaun Wilkinson. “This is a charity close to the hearts of all at UTAX (UK) as a result of sadly losing our beloved colleague Tracy Lawrance in 2014.”
Wilkinson added: “We would like to formally take the opportunity to thank all those who participated and assisted in raising an amazing £1,100 ($1,429/€1,234) for this great cause. Our annual golf day is an opportunity to thank our partners for their valued and loyal support. It also gives me and my team an important opportunity to network with them and to discuss our products and solutions and in turn for them to meet each other and exchange their news, views and ideas for continued growth.”
Bloodwise’s regional manager for the South West, Claire Horrex, said: “I’d like to thank everyone at UTAX and their clients for all their support of Bloodwise at their recent partner golf day held in memory of their colleague Tracy. They’ve raised a fantastic amount and this will go directly towards helping patients with blood cancer and their families. Bloodwise could not continue to do the work that we do without the support of people like UTAX, thank you for all your hard work at organising such a successful fundraising day.”
