Rance Timber & Amathole Forestry Company hosts 12th annual golf day
Rance Timber and Amathole Forestry Company hosted their 12th Annual Company Golf Day on Saturday, 3 March 2018.
Despite wet and rainy conditions, the invitation-only corporate event was a huge success, attracting a full field of 84 golfers from Rance’s extensive stable of customers and suppliers, whose participation and sponsorship resulted in substantial donations to two Stutterheim institutions.
“Our annual golf day is a great opportunity for the company to interact with our customers and suppliers, and to thank them for their continued support throughout the year,” said Graham Hansel, Rance’s Sales and Marketing Manager.
“The fundraising format of the event also allows us to support key institutions within the Stutterheim community.”
The beneficiaries of this year’s event were Stutterheim High School and the Stutterheim Country Club.
“Thanks must go to the Stutterheim Country Club for allowing the use of the course on a day that would normally host their members,” Graham said.
As in previous years, Rance Timber and Amathole Forestry Company matched the proceeds from the day, up to a predetermined amount, to ensure substantial contributions could be made to the two beneficiary organisations.
“While the total value of this year’s event was down from the previous year, a remarkable amount of money was raised under trying economic conditions,” Graham noted.
The money raised for Stutterheim High School, together with the amount raised for the school from last year’s event, has been earmarked for a specific project in the near future. “We look forward to working with the school to put these funds to good use,” Graham said.
“Rance Timber and Amathole Forestry Company would like to thank everyone who enjoyed the day with us – the golfers, the sponsors that supported us on the course and all who contributed to the day in some form.”
