The East Devon Golf Club Captains’ Charity Day was once again sponsored by Gilbert Stephens Solicitors.

The event was another huge success and the Gilbert Stephens’ team of Marcus Quick, Peter Bennett, Steve Tutchings and Simon Cornwell, a little nervous at tee off but, despite the distracting beauty of the Jurassic Coast, they were able to hold their heads high with a mid-table finish.

In addition to sponsoring a hole at the event Gilbert Stephens donated a picture by local artist George Hutchinson of Coastal Impressions.

George’s bold colour interactions showcase this special part of the world, the image seemed very apt for a Club situated in such a stunning setting and the image will be used for their future fundraising ventures.

Acknowledging the importance of the day Patrick Langrishe, partner at Gilbert Stephens Solicitors, said: “The golf club is a community hub and this fun event helps raise money that will be a vital lifeline to charities and we are proud of our continued involvement, and team performance!”

East Devon Golf Club captain Tony Mackness said: “It was certainly a very successful day, raising over £8,000 for the charities, Prostate Cancer UK and Bramble Ward Trust at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, with more money due to come in by the end of the year. The day out-performed all my expectations!”

Gilbert Stephens Solicitors have six offices across Devon including a branch in Budleigh Salterton.
