Hosted at West Hill Golf Club in Brookwood, Surrey, Invuse held its first charity golf day in support of our friends at RNIB, the UKs leading sight loss charity.
Following a welcome, event briefing and an early morning breakfast networking session, our group of golf enthusiasts were then treated to a special appearance on the practice tee by English professional golfer Marco Penge.
Covering a whole range of topics, Penge went on to share his experiences of the professional tour and provided tips and tricks on everything from how to choose the right club, the importance of a good stance and improving ball striking.
Our guests then embarked on a full round of golf around one of Surrey’s fabulous heathland courses competing for group and individual prizes on top of awards for longest drive and nearest pin.
Back at the club house, the guests were treated to some refreshments before being reminded of the great work of RNBI by Dave Williams – Customer Experience Manager at RNIB – who shared his personal experience of living with sight loss. He then went on to explain about some of the daily challenges blind and partially sighted people face and how RNIB is helping people with a visual impairment thrive and live independently.
Spurred on by Dave’s story, Invuse’s Managing Director Jamie Garrett then led a charity auction and raffle which featured a range of one-off experiences and gifts kindly donated by local businesses, contacts and friends of Invuse.
Thanks to everyone’s generous donations, we’re pleased to confirm that we surpassed our target and raised over £2,000 to help RNIB continue their great work and raised their profile to many more.

About the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB)
Every six minutes, someone in the UK begins to lose their sight. RNIB is taking a stand against exclusion, inequality and isolation to create a world without barriers where people with sight loss can lead full lives. A different world where society values blind and partially sighted people not for the disabilities they’ve overcome, but for the people they are.
