Jon Wilkin Testimonial Golf Day
Monday 9th July 2012
We had an excellent day and night at The Mere Resort where teams of 4 competed and then sat down for a three course dinner with entertainment from Halifax's number one Pete Emmett and Medical extravert Kevin Jones providing a bundle of comedy! Some special guest rugby players swapped an egg shaped ball for a lengthy club joining a selection of the teams while Jon himself stole a buggie and caused chaos on the course.
Conclusively it was a successful event with compliments on the organisation and quality, (we thank Ian Jones specifically for exerting so much time and effort towards his specific event), and look forward to the future days and nights!
