Fore! DENSO golf day raises money for Ben

A DENSO golf day, held at The Belfry as part of its ongoing celebration of 50 years in Europe, raised £2,510 for Ben earlier this month.

The company invited key customers to put forth teams for the event, as DENSO’s UK and Eire Sales Manager Kevin Peacocke explained: “The theme of the day was teamwork and the importance of aligning the objectives and relationships of the whole supply chain. To this end, as well as direct customers, the team were joined by service suppliers, representatives of OESAA and their garage forum and senior managers from within DENSO. In addition however, we also wanted to raise funds for the important work that BEN does to help industry colleagues in need.”

“The format for the day was a four ball tournament, with our guests split in terms of ability, into 12 groups, each with a member of the DENSO team making up one of the foursome, with all the major prizes awarded accordingly.

“A few individual competitions were run during the day and, although it was unfortunate that no-one scooped the £25,000 prize for the hole in one competition, trophies were awarded for the longest drive and nearest the pin. The ultimate winners were Patrick and Tom Devine of AP Air, Iain Knox from CD Group, and our very own Sales & Marketing Director, Jean Claude dal Grande. So, congratulations to them all.”

Kevin added: “The combined event was a great success as it gave us the opportunity to not only thank our customers for their ongoing support, but also give something back to the industry by donating the £2,510 raised in the evening to BEN.”

DENSO’s golf day was held on 5 June.
