Gough’s Charity Golf Day 2012

The day was organised by Martin Lang, Head of the Commercial Department. This was an opportunity for Goughs to thank clients for their continued trust and commitment and for choosing Goughs to represent their business interests, but was also an event with a clear focus of raising much needed funds for The Springfields Academy Extreme Classrooms initiative

It was a golf charity day with around 60 clients and associates participating in an 18 hole Stableford competition. There were opportunities along the way to win prizes for nearest the pin and closest the line – as well as prizes for the overall winning individual and winning team.

Goughs were an integral part of the transformation Springfields took to becoming an Academy, a relationship blossomed and Martin said that he and his fellow partners at Goughs, were proud to be associated with such an inspiring organisation and felt that they wanted to do something to show their appreciation, for what the Academy does for the young people that attend the Academy.Martin Lang gave a heartfelt and thought provoking speech at dinner where he described Trystan Williams and James Lynch as inspirational and described their dedication to changing the lives of children who as Martin put it, have been forgotten about by society.

Calum Carter, a pupil at The Springfields Academy who attended the event was happy to talk to the many people present about his own personal experiences, describing the difficulties he faced in the past – right up to his amazing experiences participating in The Extreme Classroom expeditions such as The Arctic and his recent trek in Tanzania. Calum was happy to talk openly about what The Springfields Academy has done for him, and how the Springfields Academy had supported and inspired Calum to always strive for better.

Congratulations to the winners  and a heartfelt Thanks to the Partners of Goughs for a truly amazing day
