Geoff Hurst - Advanced Engineering
On the 50th anniversary of England’s famous 1966 World Cup Final win, Sir Geoff Hurst teamed up with Advanced Engineering for their annual Golf Day.

​Sir Geoff joined the specialist chemical manufacturer and brands distributor on 5th May at Sherfield Oaks Golf Club in Hampshire.

Organised as a benevolent “thank you” to their valued customers and suppliers, the company also donated £5,000 to Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to help build a new Ark Cancer Treatment Centre in the region.

At present, many local cancer patients must travel to Southampton or Guildford, but the new centre will enable future patients to receive treatment locally rather than regularly travelling further afield.

​Advanced Engineering’s company donation was matched by local charity Greenham Common Trust – lifting the total raised to £10,000.


​Attended by the Advanced Engineering team, their customers and ACR trade magazine editors, the golf was followed by an evening meal with Sir Geoff centre stage as guest speaker.

Barry Lea, Chairman of Advanced Engineering, said: 
​“We’re very proud to contribute to such an important cause, and we’d like to thank Sir Geoff Hurst and everyone who attended.

“We work with a huge number of good people in this industry, particularly our customers, distributors and suppliers, and this is one way of thanking them for their support throughout the year, as well as giving something back to the community we work within.”
