Four golfing enthusiasts from HW Martin (Traffic Management) Ltd, and sister company Amber Langis, took part in the annual Tommy Tee-Off in October to raise money for veterans.
This year’s event took place at the Tudor Park Marriot Golf Course. It was the first ‘in-person’ event for the Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) following the Covid-19 lockdowns.
As well as providing a team of four for the day, HW Martin (Traffic Management) Ltd also sponsored a veteran team of three Gurkhas.
The day began with a tea and bacon roll before a shot gun start on the par-70, 18-hole championship course at Tudor Park. Whilst on the course, players had the opportunity to take part in contests at several of the holes for the chance to win a prize. After the final putt, the teams retired to the clubhouse for refreshments. The day was rounded off with a prize-giving and charitable auction.
Jay Taylor, National Sign Compliance Manager, at HW Martin (Traffic Management) Ltd champions the organisation’s partnership with the RBLI, he said:
“It’s crucial that we find as many opportunities as possible to support the social enterprises doing valuable work in our community. A golf day is a really good way of raising money, but more importantly, giving us the opportunity to meet some of the real people that we are supporting whilst sharing something we all enjoy. It’s a great way to reinvigorate the cause, create new bonds that might lead to further opportunities and demonstrate HW Martin (Traffic Management) Ltd.’s ongoing commitment to RBLI.”
HW Martin (Traffic Management) Ltd is already one of over 50 organisations committed to supporting RBLI, in particular Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company, providing stable employment, social opportunities and housing for ex-Forces personnel, mitigating the risks of homelessness, substance abuse and addiction that can hamper the transition process.
The RBLI is a national charity supporting the Armed Forces, people with disabilities and people who are unemployed helping them to find independence.
