Fair way to raise cash

SPARKS flew as Solihull's Bang & Olufsen helped raise £18,000 for a children's charity at their annual charity golf challenge last month.

A team of three Solihull businessmen, comprising of Bang & Olufsen customers David Burton, Andy Davies and Dealer Principle Sam Burton represented the Solihull branch on Drury Lane at Berkshire's Bearwood Lakes Golf Club where they were joined by exGoodies comedian Tim Brooke-Taylor.

Sam Burton said: "It was a fantastic day. Tim had us falling about laughing. But we managed to concentrate on the vital shots and were delighted to do so well.

"The most important thing was that we managed to raise such an excellent sum for Sparks. Knowing that we have played our part in that really made me feel very proud," he added.

The 22 teams which took part in the challenge were all helped by their own celebrity player - Dennis Waterman, Ray Clemence and John Francome were just some of the stars who joined Bang & Olufsen to raise money for children's charity, Sparks.

A spokesman for the charity said: "Sparks is deeply grateful for the tremendous support we continue to receive from Bang & Olufsen UK.

"Much of the cutting-edge medical research that Sparks funds - with the aim of helping more babies to be

born healthy and grow up healthily - simply wouldn't get off the ground without the generosity of friends like these."
