Sixteen teams competed at Woburn for the Mitie Foundation Charity Golf Trophy this year. The winning team were Konica Minolta, pictured, but all agreed the day was a great way to build strong relationships and support a good cause too.
The weather was wonderful and the greens were in tip top condition, and after a long day hosted by Golf legend Mickey Walker OBE, the teams enjoyed a three course meal at the Russell Lounge.
Over £18,000 was raised to support social enterprises aimed at improving employment chances for people with barriers to employment. One of the social enterprise ideas in the early-planning stage is to transform an eighteenth century building into a training academy to help young people with learning disabilities to improve their employment chances in hospitality, catering, retail, food hygiene, customer services and self-confidence.
Suppliers, clients and Mitie colleagues are invited to collaborate with the Mitie Foundation to make this academy a reality by providing in-kind support or advice by contacting the Foundation team at Foundation@mitie.com Next year's event is already in the planning stage, with plans to extend the invite to suppliers, clients and the wider business teams.
