Teeing off to support local charity

VSBW, a joint venture between VolkerStevin and Boskalis Westminster, principal contractor for the Port of Dover’s flagship Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) development, held an exciting charity golf day on Thursday 7 September at Chestfield Golf Club, Whitstable in Kent.

There was a full programme for the day, starting with bacon rolls to ward off the hunger pangs, followed by teams of 4 teeing off every 8 minutes from 11 am onwards and playing a cut down round of 10 holes. The day culminated in a celebratory dinner in the evening, where prizes were presented for the best score, along with other golf and raffle prizes.

The event, which raised in excess of £7,500 (and still counting), was in support of ‘Donations with a Difference’, a local charity supporting physical and mental health and education within the community via grants and sponsoring activities.

Ron Eckersley, corporate social responsibility manager, VSBW, said: “We all have a responsibility to the local community to give back where we can, and this was our opportunity to do so.  It was a really great day with everyone enjoying themselves and raising much needed funds for a really great cause.”
