Carryway Support the 2016 Have a Heart Charity Golf Event at Close House

June 2, 2016

Once again Carryway has been on hand to support the annual Have a Heart charity golf day at Newcastle’s fantastic Close House Golf Course. The star studded event featured over 50 celebrities including Ant & Dec, Alan Shearer, Lee Westwood, Ronan Keating and Iain Wright to name just a few, all who gave up their time to turn up and support this fantastic cause. Close House hosts a number of charity golf events throughout the year on its two 18 hole courses, however the Have a Heart golf day is certainly the largest.

This year’s golf day featured over 100 Club Car golf and utility vehicles with an additional 90 event hire buggy’s and Carryall utility vehicles having been supplied by Carryway for use on the day, making this our largest ever event. Every guest had the shared use of a Precedent golf buggy for the day and a fleet of Carryall utility vehicles were used for ferrying stewards and other staff around the facility. All of which were shipped in during the week prior from our Birtley Depot with the assistance of our other Depots in Scotland, Wakefield and Lancashire.

In total this year’s golf day was able to raise over half a million pounds for the Children’s Heart Unit Fund (CHUF) who in 2015 were named North East Charity of the Year. This brilliant charity helps children with life threatening heart conditions by supporting both them and their families. We at Carryway were proud to have played a small part in contributing towards this cause by offering a £500 donation. Again for another year would like to thank all at Close House who contribute towards to success of this event, allowing the money to be raised to help support the CHUF charity.

Testimonials

Paul Bush OBE – Director of Events, VisitScotland

The Carryway operation was run very professionally and smoothly and to a very high standard. Their knowledge and attention to detail with the complicated planning and logistics involved were exceptional; they were a pleasure to deal with and I can highly recommend their services.

Rachel Mitchell – Senior Manager for Golf Events, IMG Golf

It has been a delight to deal with Carryway, who were our Official Golf Buggy Supplier for The 2019 Solheim Cup. They combine efficient logistics with a professional approach to every aspect of delivery, and the equipment our event benefited from was both functional and stylish. A big thank you to a wonderful Partner.

Dave Player, Team Brit Racing – CEO

The Carryway buggy was a lifesaver – and that’s no exaggeration! We were racing in the Aston Martin Le Mans Festival, which is a 45 mins support race just before the start for the big 24hr race. Our garages were about 2km away so getting all our gear to/from the pitlane for the race was made so simple because of the buggy! And it would have taken (the team) ages to get there and back! We are enormously proud of our new buggy and the livery made for it. It helps us stand out and helps raise our profile, not to mention being an essential team donkey.”

Simon Widowson – Event Men

Thank you Carryway for supplying the buggy for us at Chatsworth this year. All went well and no issues at all – it was a definite improvement on the equipment supplied last year by a different company. Happy to use you again for next year .

Daryn Cochrane – Head of Golf & PGA Professional, The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort

Thank you for the excellent customer service that we recently received from Hugh Healy, Carryway Support. Hugh was very thorough and had excellent communications with us regarding our buggy fleet at The Westerwood Resort – nothing was too difficult for him.

Caring For Life / Charity – Carl Rayner

Our open day event is a very important day for us, and it makes life much easier to have a relationship with a company (Carryway) that we can rely on each year.

Carryway are always a pleasure to deal with and their drivers are always friendly and professional. It takes a little bit of worry out of my job knowing that I can rely on your good service.

Many thanks to the team, especially Adam who was friendly, helpful and professional.

Nick Rushworth – Golf Operations Director, MacDonald Linden Hall

It is a pleasure to work with Carryway, the service and support they provide has been first class. We originally signed up for 14 brand new buggies for one year to sample working with the company.

We were pleased with the service and the product provided and have since signed up for the next few seasons and hopefully with many more to come after that.
