Greg Hildreth, Business & Communications Senior Manager at Alice House said “Huge thanks go to everyone who has donated and worked so hard to ensure the success of this first event at Hartlepool; the club are long-term supporters of Alice House, so holing our new golf event there is a perfect fit and a great way to build on our existing partnership. We have had such a great response to this that it would be impossible to thank everyone now, but we want everyone to know how much we appreciate their kindness.

“Special thanks go to Mark Davies, Harrison Smith and Paul Fraser for their invaluable help in organising this and of course our main sponsor X-energy, which has given the event a fantastic boost. We are looking forward to welcoming the teams on the day and wish them all the very best of luck.”
