5 July saw the annual British and Irish Trading Alliance (BITA) Golf Masters at the beautiful London Golf Club. This is the fourth year that JM Clark Sweeper Hire have been the headline sponsors and it was amazing to have them on board once again. Players started with a big hearty breakfast, sponsored by O’Donovan Waste Disposal. Breakfasts eaten, and coffees drank, the players made their way outside to start getting ready. With a shotgun start at 11.30, more than 100 BITA folk battled it out to see who would become the champion of the green. Once again, the weather did not disappoint; with the sun beating down all day, the guys on the course were in desperate need of a cool down. Thankfully, Geberit were sponsoring the drinks with their very own Lloyd Archer cruising the course and handing out refreshments.
After a tiring day on the golf course, some egos had grown, others were bruised. The bar, sponsored by Enterprise flex-e-rent, was the place of choice to cool down and gain welcome relief before the three-course meal. The thing on everyone’s minds; the scores! The evening’s entertainment began, and the room quickly erupted with laughs with Russ Williams hosting the night. Gallagher Group emerged victorious this year, winning the top prize with Premier Contract Supplies coming a close second and DRS Bond Management just behind them.
With the generous donations from members, BITA raised an incredible £4,000 for us. A BITA spokesperson commented;
“This year was one to remember and we cannot wait to do it all again in 2020!”
