The 2013 Foundation Golf Challenge


The 2013 Golf Challenge sponsored by M-Tech Systems

Teams of Old Eastbournians, College parents, staff, local businesses and other friends and supporters of the College turned out to play in the annual golf challenge on Thursday 4 July 2013. It was an overcast and unseasonably cold day at the Royal Eastbourne Golf Club, but this did not deter the players, who enjoyed a good day’s golf.

The event was generously sponsored by M-Tech Systems, the local IT company owned by Martin Lulham (Powell 1991–96), and goody bags were supplied by NatWest. We are grateful for the many businesses and individuals who sponsored holes, provided team prizes or donated items for the charity auction. Thanks to their generosity, the golf day raised more than £25,000 towards the Peter Bibby Award fund, a record-breaking amount.

The winning team, pictured right, were the Eclectics: left to right, Harry Finch; Rob Hill, Director of Hockey; James Wooldridge, Head of Mathematics; and Mike Harrison, Director of Sport.

The day’s golf was followed by a dinner in the club house and a lively charity auction, with items ranging from the hire of a skip to two tickets at the Wimbledon men’s singles final with seats in front of the royal box. Needless to say, the Wimbledon tickets attracted a bigger winning bid!

Donors and sponsors

Our thanks go to the many OEs, parents, businesses and others who supported the 2013 golf day with sponsorship and donations of prizes and auction items.
