After a day of golf fun, the teams attended an awards evening at the golf club where more money was raised through a charity auction and the winning team was awarded the Rondelli Shield.

Jay Wootten, Hastings Direct events manager, said: “We’re thrilled with the success of our company golf day.

“From fines for landing in the bunker to pink ball challenges, our colleagues and friends had great fun while raising lots of money for a great cause.”

Lisa Allen, from the Pink Ribbon Foundation, added: “The Pink Ribbon Foundation is delighted to be the beneficiary of Hastings Direct’s annual golf tournament in memory of Lisa Rondelli.

“It was fantastic to see so many players following the pink dress code and having fun while raising lots of money and awareness for those affected by breast cancer.”
