Friday 29th April 2016 saw 14 teams compete at the Dalmahoy Golf Course, Edinburgh, in support of The Springboard Charity. Industry professionals turned out and raised over £3,000 which will contribute towards Springboard and support the young, unemployed adults, and those facing barriers to work into sustainable employment in the hospitality, leisure and tourism industry.
The industry was represented through teams from Apex Hotels, BaxterStorey, CH & Co, Cordia, Marriott Dalmahoy, EICC, ESS Compass, Grand Central, Xpress Recruitment, Brakes, Stonehardy, Sodexo and Anglian. Anglian went on to claim victory, beating the elements and 13 teams in support of The Springboard Charity.
Kelly Johnstone, Springboard’s Scotland Director, said, “Once again a great successful Springboard Annual Golf Day was hosted superbly at Marriott Dalmahoy. A huge thanks to the teams entering and congratulations to Anglian the winners. It was a cold day but everyone enjoyed themselves and we’re looking forward to next year! It’s a great way to help continue the great work Team Springboard do in Scotland!”
Lynn Norwood, Head of People Development at Cordia, said, “I had a fantastic day on Friday. A big thank you for everything except the weather!”
