Sporting fund-raising trio enjoy another spectacular success

Leigh Broome, Chris Busby and Timmy Roberts with Ceri Bevan of the MS Society

Chris Busby, Timmy Roberts and Leigh Broome are well-known in local sporting circles and formed a work’s golf society to allow them to do annual charity golf days and they have raised large sums from their work mates and sporting friends.

They are currently under company brand  name ‘Puma Energy’, but officially on the day of their event  it was under the new company name : ‘The  Impala Charity Golf Day.‘
This year the trio are supporting the Multiple Sclerosis charity because a dear friend and ex-colleague Steven Roberts is suffering from the illness but has shown enormous courage in his own fund-raising, which included walking the Pembrokeshire Coast Path in both directions.
As Chris told us,
“We have raised over £18,000 for the last two events we have done. This time, Mark James, my rugby team mate from Neyland, who works for OC Davies,  Neyland Roundabout Garage, had sourced us a brand  new car via his boss to use as a hole-in-one challenge on the 10th  hole at Milford Haven Golf Club.
“We had  loads of support from local companies, small businesses and self -employed workers sponsoring a hole and many donations for raffles to allow us to raise much-needed funds for the charity.
“Also we had  managed to get the legendary great Welsh second row Ian Gough to play and be there for us - and also we had a special donation from him which will be used at our auction.  Also Sam Parry, another Welsh international from Haverfordwest, has been fantastic in donating yearly to aid our golf day charity auctions.
The Golf Day was such an immense success that it produced an amazing total raised of £8,505.24 – and more great news came with the splendid reaction of Impala as they match-funded this sum so that Chris, Timmy and Lee were able to present the magnificent sum of £17,010.48 to Steve Roberts for the befit of  the MS Society.
