Edmonds & Slatter Opticians organised their first official charity golf day during Guide Dogs week this October, where, as per the theme of the week, participants were asked to “Move it FORE money”.
The day was hosted by Mr Saagar Hirani, partner and Optometrist at Edmonds & Slatter Opticians and started off with bacon cobs and coffee before the fundraising commenced. Right from the first tee-off Golfers were being “fined” for a number of things with all money going towards the charity. There were also two competitions running during the day for “Longest Drive” and “Closest to the pin”.
After the golf, players settled down for a well-deserved Sunday Lunch, but the fundraising didn’t stop there. A raffle for a pair of golfing sunglasses was conducted and Mr Hirani awarded Guide Dog Ears to golfers in recognition of their skills on the course that day. “Top Dog” was the best player of the day and “In the Doghouse” was awarded to the worst player of the day.
The event was thoroughly enjoyed by all the golfers, some have even asked for a re-match next year! A total of £394.23 was raised for Edmonds & Slatter's “Name a Puppy” fund with Guide Dogs.
