News: Sundial Group Support Carefree Northants Golf Day
24 May 2012
On Thursday 17th May Carefree Northants held a fundraising day at Brampton Heath Golf Course. UK venue group, Sundial Group showed their support by arriving with the ‘Chudbus' to provide the golfers with refreshments throughout the day.
A team from the marketing department and Highgate House, one of the three country house conference hotels within the Sundial Group, were on hand in golf buggies full of Pimms, soft drinks, strawberries and chocolate to make sure the golfers were energised for the day. The ‘Chudbus', also stocked with goodies, was a great source of interest to both the golfers and some of the people who benefit from the work of Carefree Northants.
The ‘Chudbus', Sundial's iconic English Routemaster bus, has become an important symbol in portraying Sundial's history and values - the Chudley family, owner-operators of the hospitality group used to travel around in a bus in the sixties because it was the easiest way to transport their family of 11!
The rain held off and the day was a great success, enjoyed by all and a total of £15,500 was raised, which is a fantastic achievement. Jo Chudley, Sundial Group Marketing Director said "We were delighted to be involved in the Golf Day to support Carefree Northants and it was great to see so many people there. At Sundial Group we are always keen to be involved with local events and this was a great day for everyone involved".
