Corporate member Axminster Tools & Machinery once again organised a successful golf day that raised more than £800 for the charity.

Thirty-eight players travelled from as far as Stoke to play at the prestigious Lyme Regis course on the south coast of Dorset on 1 May 2018. The tournament was followed by sandwiches, cake and a raffle.

Competitors playing on behalf of The Furniture Makers’ Company were past Master Paul von der Heyde, court assistant Graham Marley, past Master Ben Burbidge and past Master David Dewing.

Andrew Cross, after sales manager at Axminster Tools & Machinery, won the individual competition and received a turned and pyrographed bowl made by the talented Axminster Skill Centre staff.

Hayden Davies, Master of The Furniture Makers’ Company, said: “We’d like to thank our corporate member Axminster Tools & Machinery for continuing to organise this fantastic event that gets bigger and better every year. Supporter-led events such as these are vital to communicating the good work that the Company performs and strengthen the bonds of fellowship amongst industry colleagues.”
