Day out at Maryport for Iggesund golfers
Last updated at 15:42, Friday, 18 July 2014
Fifty people took to the Maryport fairways last week to enjoy a round of golf and to support a fellow worker at Iggesund.
The event was the annual Iggesund Golf Tournament, which sees present and retired staff along with guests and suppliers come together for a tournament.
It was started 20 years ago by three Iggesund staff members Ian Oglanby, Geoff Hall and the late Bill Airlie.
Oglanby said: “It is a great opportunity for everyone to meet and interact.
“The suppliers meet the end users of their products and management and shopfloor staff play together. It is a really good day and we had wonderful weather.”
The day ended with an egg dump and raffle which raised £250.
This will go to Iggesund contractor Euan Duff who is raising money for the Anthony Nolan Trust.
Duff’s father Colin, who lives in Annan but also works at Iggesund, needed a bone marrow transplant and was able to identify a German donor through the trust.
Duff is at home waiting to be well enough for the transplant, Oglanby said.
Iggesund prize: 1, Barry Vickers, 2, Peter Gibson, 3, Stephen Grimley. Sponsor/guest prize: 1, Des Johnston, 2, Ken Cowman, 3, Kris Feeley. Senior category: 1, Ian Oglanby, 2, Tony Clarke, 3, John Gibson
