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.
