Guildford Hyundai Sponsors Charity Golf Day

Added: 14 June 2018

Guildford Hyundai i20 Winner

The event was organised by Cry for the Moon jewellery shop in Guildford – helping raise money for the Shooting Star Chase charity, which is a children’s hospice that cares for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families.

Guildford Hyundai supplied a brand new Hyundai i20 as the main prize. The idea was to make a hole-in-one on the 13th hole to win the car. Amazingly Roger Fidler did just that and is now the proud owner of an i20 hatchback.

Stephen Sutton is the manager at Cry for The Moon. He said: “This is the first charity golf day we have ever done and it was a great success. Instead of giving small donations to charity every so often, we decided to support Shooting Star Chase because it’s a fantastic charity that is recognised throughout the Guildford area.”

Stephen also ran the London marathon earlier this year in aid of the charity.

Andrew Lickfold is a Motability Specialist at Guildford Hyundai. He said: “The event was a success, with a lot of money being raised for Shooting Star Chase. It’s a charity that I have been involved with in the past so I am glad to have been given the opportunity to take part.

“There were a number of competitions run alongside the 18-hole match which added to the fun of the day. All in all it was a great event and I look forward to hopefully taking part again next year too.”

The charity golf day saw more than £3800 raised for the charity, and is set to become an annual event.
