Last weekend, Bowland IT had the honor of being the prize sponsor for the Burnley FC in the Community charity golf day. This event was a tremendous success, raising over £9,000 that will go a long way in supporting essential community initiatives.

We at Bowland IT take our commitment to the local community seriously. Our sponsorship of the Burnley FC charity golf day was more than just a corporate endeavor; it was a heartfelt gesture to give back and make a meaningful impact where it matters most.

A Golfing Triumph: Twenty teams took to the greens for a day of golfing excellence, all made possible by the generous event sponsorship from Green Shield and the golf ball donations from Pennine Pneumatic Services. The result was a day filled with camaraderie and sporting excellence, highlighting the power of unity.

Celebrating Champions: Congratulations are in order for this year’s champions, Recycle IT, who demonstrated not only their golfing prowess but also their sportsmanship. Their victory showcases the spirit of competition and the joy of coming together for a great cause.

Prizes and Surprises: Although the Land Rover prize, courtesy of Vertu Motors in Nelson, remained unclaimed for a hole-in-one, the day held a remarkable surprise when one golfer achieved a hole-in-one on a different hole. It’s a reminder of the unpredictable and thrilling nature of golf.

Community Spirit: The day wasn’t just about golf; it concluded with an exciting raffle and auction. Attendees savored a classic Burnley meal of pie, peas, and gravy, adding a local flavor to the event.

Making a Difference: The success of the event highlights the strong connection between the club, its fans, and its sponsors. The funds raised, totaling over £9,000, will have a profound impact on the local community. These funds will play a crucial role in supporting Burnley FC’s ongoing community initiatives, bringing positivity to the lives of many.

A Lasting Legacy: The Burnley FC charity golf day’s triumph stands as a testament to the unwavering support of the charity’s partners, sponsors, and supporters. It goes beyond the golf course, demonstrating the club’s dedication to creating a lasting and positive change in the community.

Bowland IT is immensely proud to have been part of this remarkable event. Our sponsorship, along with the collective efforts of the community, has shown that when we come together with a shared purpose, remarkable things can happen. The £9,000 raised is not just a number; it’s a symbol of hope and transformation for the Burnley community. The charity golf day exemplifies how sports, community, and corporate social responsibility can combine to create a brighter future for all.
