The GCA Annual Conference is off to St Andrews on 22nd January to 25th January?2017.??The annual charity event?’Greenfingers Challenge Trophy’,?in aid of Greenfingers, will take place on Sunday January 22nd.? 2016 saw ?11k raised for the?charity…let’s raise that and more in 2017!
The Cabbages represent the suppliers in the gardening industry and it is anticipated that these will sponsor the PINS.???The Pansies represent garden centres, and will sponsor the TEES due to their incredible knowledge of tea and coffee!? Woodlodge have kindly agreed to supply all sporting material, so no need for you to bring your own clubs!? There are 18 holes and sponsorship starts at ?250 per hole and other sponsorship opportunities are available. Each team will consist of 4 people (2 x Cabbages and 2 x Pansies).
Dress code will be golfing attire and there will be prizes for the best dressed golfer, as well as for the lowest score, and of course the prestigious team award.
As you can imagine, with Woodlodge organising the event, this will be no ordinary game of golf, think unusual and fun ….be prepared to smile your way around this course!!!
Guy Topping, from Barton Range Garden Centres,?will be taking charge of the Pansies and Ian Flounders of Woodlodge,?is picking up the reins from Danny Adamson and is calling on all suppliers and garden centres to sponsor a hole and book their teams in to join in the fun.
Ian, who recently rowed across the?Irish Sea (St Georges’s Channel)?to raise money for Greenfingers, stated: ” I am absolutely delighted and thrilled to be heading the Cabbages at this prestigious and fun filled annual competition, which is all in aid of the Greenfingers charity.”
Once the?day has come to a conclusion,?a light hearted quiz is to be billed as ” THE TOPPING SHOW LIVE” a once a year must?in the?evening of ‘phenomenon, ridicule and cunning ways to part with your cash for our amazing charity’ hosted by Mr Guy Topping and his beautiful assistant Carol, where we hope competitors and candidates alike will join in the jollities!
