The Golden Lion in Luddesdown, Kent, claimed first place in the Licensed Trade Charity Golf Tournament’s fifth regional heat.

The event, which was sponsored by Fuller’s, took place at Shirley Park Golf Club in Croydon, Surrey, on 5 July, and featured eight teams from pubs across the south-east of England.

The winning team players Louis Lovell, John Bullock, John Shevlin and Graham Tilsed will represent the south-east region at the national grand final on 6 October at the Archerfield Links golf club in Scotland, which is sponsored by Sky.

The tournament is more than halfway through, and the four remaining heats yet to take place are in Oxfordshire, Devon, Herefordshire and Nottingham.

Help for pub trade

Money raised from the tournament will help fund Licensed Trade Charity’s work across the country.

The charity helps people in the pub trade, and its support covers money, health, housing, education and family matters.

Earl Baker, sales manager of traditional free trade at Fuller’s, said: “Fuller’s is really proud to sponsor the Licensed Trade Charity’s south-east heat this year. It is essential that, as part of the licensed community, we support the Licensed Trade Charity and its work, and we are really happy to have been able to provide a venue and support for this heat.”

'Give something back'

“As a long-established family brewer, we have seen the trade transformed in recent times and it is more important than ever to give something back to the licensed community, the people connected to it and working in the trade.

“Thank you, especially to Shirley Park Golf Club for providing a great course and some much-needed sunshine.”
