Gloucester-based firm The P & M Group has hosted a second Charity Golf Day, which raised thousands of pounds, after an inaugural event last year.

The day was attended by sporting greats, including former England cricket captain David Gower, and was held at the Vale Golf Club near Pershore, Worcestershire.

Attendees raised £22,700 for youth sports and the disability charity Lord’s Taverners, where Gower is president.

The P&M Group managing director Tony Wall said: "I’m delighted with the amount we’ve raised for this wonderful charity and extremely grateful to our guests, sponsors and donors for their generous gifts of their time and donations.

"I know the business guests here have been delighted to mingle with some of the sporting legends, and to play a round of golf with them is a memory we’ll treasure for a long time."

Other famous faces in attendance were cricketing greats Andy Caddick, Tim Munton, Paul Prichard and Gus Mackay, former rugby international George Chuter, footballer Dean Holdsworth and sports presenter Jonny Gould.

After the golf, an evening dinner was hosted by Gower and there was a live charity auction hosted by Richard Madley from BBC’s Bargain Hunt.

Gower said: "This event has raised a huge amount of invaluable funds for young people in the region and helped the charity work towards its goal of positively impacting the lives of young people facing the challenges of inequality.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to meet many of the young people on our cricket programmes, hear how much our life-changing work means to them and what a significant difference it continues to make to participants and their communities.

"None of that would be possible without the amazing support of companies like the P & M Group, Tony and everyone who has helped deliver a fantastic day. Thank you so much to everyone."

Mark Curtin, CEO of Lord’s Taverners, added: " We are eternally grateful for the long term support of the P & M Group and in particular Tony who is a huge friend of the charity.

"Once again we had a fantastic day and the money raised by everyone will make a life-changing impact on the thousands of young people we support who live with a disability or are from disadvantaged backgrounds."
