Another round for the PPS Charity Golf Day

Posted on

Nine teams took to the course on Friday 6th September for the PPS annual golf day.

Unfortunately, the golfers weren’t the only ones driving – so was the rain! It didn’t dampen spirits though as staff, suppliers and customers set off at Crow Nest Park Golf Club in Brighouse.
