Business teams invited to St Elizabeth Hospice's golf day

Business teams invited to St Elizabeth Hospice's golf day

 A £20,000 VW car and a signed Beckham shirt are up for grabs at St Elizabeth Hospice’s golf day.

Eighteen teams from local businesses have already registered for the fundraiser on Friday May 13 at Hintlesham Golf Club – but more are welcome.

There will be an innovative silent auction by text message – the first of its kind in the area – with prizes including an Imran Khan signed cricket bat, actress Maureen Lipman’s ‘Duckchair’ deckchair, Ricky Hatton’s signed boxing glove, a chef’s table at Gordon Ramsay’s Claridge’s Restaurant and a signed David Beckham shirt.

There will also be the chance to win a VW car worth £20,000 in a ‘Hole In One’ Competition.

Carl Brooks, St Elizabeth Hospice’s business income generation manager, said: “The event has already attracted 18 teams but we have a capacity for six more. There are some great items available at the auction and it will be a fun way of supporting the Hospice and networking at the same time.”

Among the Ipswich businesses already signed up are: Simply Money Ltd, NatWest, chartered surveyors Castons, Bauder Ltd and digital agency Itineris.
