December might be the time of year when most of us are indoors wrapping up warm, but rather than turning up the thermostat, on Wednesday the 9th of December a team from Lodge Garage Mazda in Aylesbury are getting together with radio station Heart FM to host a golf day to raise money for the Make Some Noise charity.
On the day, 22 teams of four players will hit the fairways at Studley Wood Golf Club in Oxfordshire. The Lodge Garage team of golfing-enthusiast customers, plus General Manager, Simon Marzuoli say they are hoping for a hole-in-one. Each team taking part will make a donation of £250 to Make Some Noise.
The charity, Make some Noise, was set up by Global Radio group and supports projects and communities that help to change the lives of young people throughout the UK. Each year Make Some Noise awards grants and helps projects such as workshops for teenagers with cancer, rehabilitation for children with brain tumours or providing support for young carers.
Explaining why they got involved, Floyd Timms, Dealer Principal at Lodge Garage Mazda, said, “Lodge Garage Mazda is proud to support this charity golf day and to be playing a part too with our own team. Make Some Noise makes a real difference through a wide range of projects and we are pleased to be helping raise money for such a worthy cause. We‘re sure it will prove to be a popular and well-attended event, and one that we can do again next year.”
