On 27th May 2016 Futura celebrated two successes – Our 30th year of business, as well as the fourth consecutive year holding our Futura Foundation Charity Event, pulling out all the stops in order to host a truly memorable event.
Hosted at the prestigious Forest of Arden Country Club - which has previously hosted a succession of international tournaments, our Golfers took to the course at 8am accompanied by glorious sunshine and a host of wildlife. Playing 18 holes in teams of four, the golfers enjoyed a day out on the course and had some winning moments captured by the student photographers of South Worcestershire College.
Stealing the title from last years’ winner, Martin Earl – Richard Stanton won this year's Golf tournament, closely followed by Paul Llewellyn who came in at second place.
Post-Golf, Futura’s guests attended a gala evening in the hotel's Arden Suite. Greeted by the Nero String Quartet on arrival, guests then sat down to a three-course dinner, which was followed by a live auction, speeches and a brilliant table magician. The photo booth captured memories of the evening, which was topped off with a fantastic live performance from The Zippers, which got everyone on their feet.
Raising an amazing £7,000 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital; the fundraising was a great success. The much-needed funds will allow the hospital to continue researching into the diagnosis and treatment of rare childhood illnesses.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without our amazing sponsors: Granlyn, MHA MacIntyre Hudson, Stratstone, Rampf, Visual Security Ltd, Abacus & Gowling WLG.
Thanks also goes out to local businesses which have supported the event: Forest of Arden Marriot Hotel, Nettl, Sounds Commercial, Best Impressions and The Phoenix Pattern & Tool Co Ltd.
Thank you also for all contributions on the night and post-event, no matter how big or small – Everything has been very much appreciated.
