The 2014 NEPIC Golf Day is a great success – especially for the winners, Lucite, and Children Challenging Industry who benefitted from the money raised!

The 20th NEPIC Golf Day, organised by Paul Butler, was held on September 4th at De Vere Slaley Hall, Northumberland and was voted a great success by all 168 golfers who took part.
The Lucite International team (David Heaviside, Jason Wing, John Furnell and Alistair Briggs) were the winners – with individuals taking other prizes (see below).

Sembcorp continued with their main sponsorship of the event with George Ritchie presenting the prizes, the registration gift was presented by ABB and score cards covered by Siemens. Utilitywise supported the Hole in One competition and the trophies provided by Lucite International were made from their own acrylic resins.

Chemoxy were responsible for the pre-dinner entertainment (Tricky Bob), Oranmore presented the Golf Simulator and Lockton’s Insurance  the golfer’s on course Video Analysis. The putting competition prize was given by Crane-Tomlinson Hall partnership.

The raffle raised an amazing £1350 for Children Challenging Industry, CIEC’s flagship primary project to introduce primary children to exciting science set in an industrial context. The money raised will be used for much needed PPE and practical equipment. Gayle Pook and Nicky Waller were delighted to accept the cheque on behalf of CIEC from Dr Stan Higgins, CEO of NEPIC.
