Wallis Shipping celebrate 30 years in business with charity golf day
As part of Wallis Shipping’s 30th anniversary celebrations the company hosted a charity golf day and dinner at the Stoke By Nayland hotel for our customers, agents and logistic suppliers.
Guests were invited to an 18-hole game of golf on the Constable course, followed by a drinks and dinner reception in the evening. Wallis clients, Sportsafe UK, took home both the best team award and the best individual prize from Vanessa Adams, who scored one below her handicap and an impressive 37 points!
Through sponsorship and a raffle on the day we managed to raise over £1800 to support our staff’s chosen charities. Through a staff ballot Leukaemia UK, Freddie’s Wish, and the Robin Cancer Trust were selected as the nominated charities.
Since April 1987, Wallis Shipping has been shipping goods around the world and importing into the UK for customers from many industry sectors – everything from consumer goods and food, to machinery and industrial equipment for environmental projects.
What started off as just a small team of five, including husband and wife duo, and Wallis directors, Stuart and Sue Gregory, has now grown to employing 30 staff spread over four office sites in Colchester, Slough, and Rugby.
More fundraising events will continue throughout the year to support staff’s chosen charities. For more team photos and action shots from the golf day check out our Wallis Shipping Facebook page
