On the 29th April, Paul, Pete and Steve put their pens and keyboards away and dusted off their golf clubs as part of the 5 Rings team at the Care For Veterans Golf Day at Ham Manor. Care for Veterans was established in 1919 to care for those soldiers returning from World War I with life-changing disabilities. For 100 years, Care For Veterans has provided long term nursing care, rehabilitation, respite and award-winning end of life care to disabled ex-Servicemen and women from the RAF, Army, Royal Navy and auxiliary services.
This is the first time that the team has been able to hit the greens due to the Covid 19 restrictions so this was a welcome opportunity to represent a cause that we have been supporting for many years, as well as the chance to dust off the clubs and get the swing back into action. With social distancing rules applying, the event was superbly run by Ham Manor Golf Club and the hog roast went down just as well as the golf throughout the day. It was so refreshing to have a face-to-face event and the weather held out for all of us as well.
Along with the other teams and businesses being represented, a total of £5,725 was raised for Care For Veterans, which is a superb amount and we were delighted to play our part in the success of the day.
