OIAM Summer AM/AM Golf Tournament 2018

The One In A Million 2018 Summer AM/AM Golf tournament was held for the second consecutive year at a well presented Shipley Golf Club on Friday 17th August 2018, sponsored by our friends and long-term supporters Illingworth McNair Insurance Brokers.

Eighteen teams of four met for bacon sandwiches and coffee ahead of playing 18 holes of competitive ‘stableford format’ golf which was played in a great spirit. Teams were refuelled during their round by drinks and ‘Yorkshire Tapas’ at the ‘Halfway House’ which provided a welcome break in play ahead of our charity hole on the 11th, staffed by our OIAM volunteers and Dan Firth from Barclays who kindly match funded every £1 raised during the day.

Following a great day’s golf, a delicious two-course meal was served, cooked by Shipley Golf clubs in-house chefs, followed by some fundraising activities with prizes generously donated by Complete IT Systems and Bradford born filmmaker Sid Sadowskyj who kindly joined us on the day.

The evening’s entertainment was provided by TV comedian Martin Gold who gave a belly-laughing performance which left the audience in stitches.

A great day was rounded off with prizes handed out to our day’s winners by Susan Illingworth of Illingworth McNair Insurance Brokers and Shipley Golf Club member.
