The annual Sovini Group Golf Day brought together 80 golfers from the housing and commercial sector at Childwall Golf Club to compete in the sold-out event, which was hosted by local comedian Willie Millar.

The guests and 23 sponsors in attendance collectively raised over £12,000 for the Pride of Sefton.

The Pride of Sefton is a community-focused wide beam canal boat operated by Sovini Charities, and proceeds from the event will be used to provide concessionary trips to local charitable and community groups.

During the day, golfers had the opportunity to win a variety of prizes donated by local companies and were also able to bid on auction items including Liverpool and Everton FC hospitality.

Ann Owens from the Pride of Sefton said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been chosen to receive this very generous donation from The Sovini Group. The funds will enable us to continue providing concessionary trips to local charitable and community groups, supporting people across the Liverpool City Region.”

The Sovini Group CEO Roy Williams said: “Our annual Golf Day is becoming one of our favourite events of the year. It’s such a great opportunity to raise valuable funds for a very worthy local cause. I would like to thank our sponsors and guests who helped to make this event such a success, supporting our vision to create a better future.”
