5 July 2019 - Another successful Foundation Golf Challenge

The annual Foundation Golf Challenge on Friday 5 July proved to be a great success, helping to raise funds towards a College sports bursary, the Peter Bibby Award. The Royal Eastbourne was once again the venue, and 19 teams from across the College and local community took part.

The day began with registration, coffee and bacon rolls in the clubhouse, before a shotgun start at 12.30pm. With the weather warm, sunny and dry, conditions were perfect for an enjoyable afternoon's golf. Once all the teams had returned a group photo was taken and prizes were announced.

Mirren Mace, the daughter of Peter Bibby, presented the prizes. The overall winners were Identity, with AFC in second place and HASbeens in third. Other prizes were awarded to David Twine (Team Twine) for the longest drive on the 1st, Sam Southon (Identity) for the longest drive on the 12th, Alicia Parris (Identity) for nearest the pin on both the 8th and the 18th, and Nick Richards (Gatland's Red Army) for nearest the pin on the 15th.

During the evening dinner which followed a charity auction was held, helping to raise money towards the Peter Bibby Award, which provides bursary funding for a place at the College for a talented local cricketer. Final figures are still to be announced but in excess of £18,000 was raised on the day.

Our thanks go to all who took part, donated prizes and auction items, and sponsored the event, including main sponsor M-Tech Systems.
