Chairman’s Charity Day Raises £3350 for the Franchise Trust

The British Franchise Association’s annual Chairman’s Charity Day took place on the 11th of July at the Warwickshire Golf & Country Club, and was hosted by current bfa Chairman, John Spencer, raising £3350 for the Franchise Trust.

A flagship event in the bfa calendar, the Chairman’s Charity Day this year saw 24 attendees playing rounds of golf in teams of four. 

After 18 rounds, the team that won was HSBC & Right at Home – Ken Braddock, HSBC, Marc Talbot, HSBC, Tony Massey, HSBC, and Ken Deary, Right at Home.

The longest drive went to Moss Sirisom of Inspired Energy and Byn Piper of DC Thomson secured the hit closest to the hole. 

The overall winner of the day based on a handicap was Ken Braddock from HSBC, winning golf equipment.

The Chairman’s Charity Day was created to support the The Franchise Trust, a UK Franchise Charity that seeks to support futures in franchising by offering training and employment opportunities to people in need, as well as many other exciting initiatives designed to enable people from less fortunate backgrounds to thrive in the franchising industry.

John Spencer, Chairman of the British Franchise Association, was thrilled to see the supportive turnout, saying:

“The day was a huge success with everyone coming together for a bit of friendly competition. While our annual charity day is designed for our attendees to enjoy themselves, it’s all in the name of an important cause. The profits made from this day will go directly to The Franchise Trust as we believe that through franchising, we can offer people a better future.”
