On Friday 26th July Manchester Staff sponsored a Golf Day to support a local community football team. The event was organised by Manchester Gregorians FC, which was formed, in 1959, by former pupils of St Gregory’s RC High School, Ardwick Green. The club is regarded as one the strongest Amateur Football Club’s in Manchester and is well known for its youth and community programmes.
The Golf Day was hosted at the beautiful course at Northenden Golf Club, where teams of four competed for glory and bragging rights. The overall winners was a team from our parent company Buckleigh & Williams, so competition was high from the beginning!
It was a pleasure to sponsor the Manchester Gregorian’s Golf Day, we are always open to supporting any cause that is of benefit to the local community, and this football club does great work in supporting and engaging with youths through the medium of sport.Ian Buckley, Director Manchester Staff / Buckleigh & Williams
Manchester Staff supported the event by sponsoring the golf balls and the longest drive award, with funds helping to support the local sports club. After the golf, the teams were treated to meal, raffle and auction to raise money. Prizes ranged from golf gear and some amazing signed football shirts, with the most notable being a Real Madrid shirt signed by Ronaldo and Luis Figo!
The event was a huge success and the teams were blessed with some great weather while the teams navigated the course. Manchester Staff was delighted to help support and contribute to a great local sports club that does so much for the local youth, and community in general.
