KIERAN Melling from Tidworth Army Barracks won a Nissan GT-R track day from our Hadfield Road dealership in Cardiff after entering the Armed Forces Day Golf Tournament last Tuesday (June 21, 2016).
Twenty-year-old Kieran got his golf ball nearest the pin on the 12th hole at the event at Cottrell Park Golf Club in St Nicholas and won the track day experience.
Steve Grinter, our Service Manager at the Hadfield Road dealership, who took part in the Armed Forces Day Golf Tournament, said: “I would like to congratulate Kieran on winning our competition at the event and hope he enjoys his supercar track day.
“It was a fantastic tournament and all the money raised, which is still being counted, will be donated to the South Wales Armed Forces Day, which takes place in Caerphilly on Saturday, June 25.
“I entered the tournament as part of a team called the Caddyshacks. The team included Sean Davies, Director at Davies Motor Company, Mike Chick, Sales Manager at Pro-copy and Justin Belle, Director at Lonsdale Contracts.
“There were 18 teams that played the four-person scramble format. We managed to finish second place overall with first place going to a team named ‘Tomb’s’. Kieran not only won our competition but was also part of the winning team. Well done to him.”
The aim of Armed Forces Day South Wales is to raise awareness of the contribution made by those who serve and have served in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces.
It also gives people an opportunity to show their support to the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community, from currently serving personnel, to service families, veterans and cadets.
Steve added: “We are always keen to help local businesses, charities and organisations within our community. The Armed Forces Day Golf Tournament was a great event and we are pleased that we have been able to lend our support once again.”
