The Annual Raven Roofing Supplies Golf Day

For the second consecutive year the sun shone brightly and the temperature increased in time for the Raven Roofing Supplies Golf Day.

The 2013 competition comprised 13 teams competing for the coveted individual and team prizes.

This year the overall individual winner was Derek Jones with a score of 40 points. Derek has played on the Raven golf day several times in the past and is a deserving winner. The team prize was won by Paul Barbury, Jon Hanson and David Arendell. Nearest the pin went to Joe Williams and longest drive to Martin Fewtrell.

The fastest loss of the yellow ball went to Team Sykes. First hole, first shot…..

The 17th hole again saw a “Beat the Pro” competition which raised money for the Raven Roofing Supplies Charity of the Year, Naomi House and jacksplace Hospice.

14th January 2013
Raven Roofing Supplies has chosen to support Wessex Children’s Hospice Trust as its Charity of the Year for 2013.

Wessex Children’s Hospice Trust, known as Naomi House and jacksplace, provides support to children and young people with life-limiting conditions from across central southern England. The charity offers care that includes planned and emergency respite stays, end of life and bereavement care. This support is available 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.

The services the Trust provides are available to families from two purpose-built hospices, Naomi House and jacksplace, which are situated in Sutton Scotney, north of Winchester in Hampshire. Jacksplace is one of only four hospices of its type in the UK. Providing unique support for young people with palliative care needs, the facility enables the charity to provide care centred on privacy, dignity and independence to young people from across central southern England, including London.

In addition the community service supports families, living within approximately an hour’s drive, in their own homes who need our help during emergency situations.

We need to raise just under £7 million each year to provide these services to the children, young people and families. With less than 10% of income coming from Government and other statutory bodies, the Trust relies on the generosity of people in the community to continue its work. Their support enables the charity to provide these crucial care services, free of charge, to children, young adults and their families.
