Metalogic were pleased to support the Aluminium Stockholders Association and their chosen charity Sparks earlier this month by entering a team and sponsoring the Matt Le Tissier Celebrity Golf Day. The event, held at Essendon Country Club on September 7th was favoured with glorious weather. Each team was captained by someone from the world of sport or television. The Metalogic Team were lucky enough to win Dave “Boy” Green MBE as their captain and were able to press our guest, the Knight Group Commercial Director, James Needs into helping out with our cause. The Team was completed by Geoff Kendell and Jon Fox, two members of our Professional Services Team.
In the UK, 1 in 30 children is born every day with a condition that may affect them for life and Sparks raises money to fund pioneering children’s medical research.
The day was a great success, raising well over £15,000 for the charity and providing some memorable moments for all the participants – many of which became embellished as the evening progressed. It was good to catch up socially with some of our customers and bring a few of them together for the first time. We also want to thank Dave for giving up his time and sharing what it was like to be a professional boxer (and carrot farmer) in the 70’s and early 80’s. For the uninitiated, his 41 fight career spanned 8 years, where he won 37 of them and 29 inside the distance. One of his losses was a World title fight against one of the greatest fighters the World has ever known – Sugar Ray Leonard. In March 1980, Green met Leonard in Landover, Maryland. He was devastatingly knocked out in the fourth round with one of the sweetest left hooks ever thrown
So the next time you get up and think that you’ve got a tough day ahead, put yourself in Dave’s shoes and think how he must of felt when he woke up on March 31st 1980!!!
