Prizes included a four ball round at the famous Brabazon course at The Belfry Hotel & Resort for the Yellow ball competition and champagne for the Longest Drive. Teams comprised representatives from Pygott & Crone, John Pye Property, Michael Evans & Associates, Morgan Sindall, Alea Casinos, Carlsberg, APSS, BSP Consulting, BSD Consulting, Watson & Cox Construction Ltd, Blueprint Interiors.

John Tansur, Commercial Director at Fraser Brown said, “It was a pleasure to bring members of the construction and property sector together to have fun and raise money for great causes, and we are always humbled by the support we receive for our CAPS charity events.”

Stephen Knott, head of fundraising and communications, Autism East Midlands, said, “We thank everyone for supporting our work. Autistic people of all ages in the region face daily challenges, which the right help and support can help them overcome, leading them to live fulfilling and independent lives.”
