Wooden Spoon Worcestershire have extended their thanks to Kevin Moran, Managing Director at Broster Buchanan for holding a corporate charity golf day in July 2019, with all proceeds going directly to the Wooden Spoon and the very worthy projects that it supports.

Wooden Spoon is a charity that changes children’s lives through the power of rugby. Each year this extraordinary charity funds around 70 projects nationwide, from community programmes and specialist playgrounds to medical treatment centres and sensory rooms. Since 1983 they have distributed over £26 million to more than 700 projects, helping more than a million children.

This was the 4th annual Broster Buchanan charity golf day, held at the picturesque Edgbaston Course and Ben Crabbe (Wooden Spoon member) was the overall winner, qualifying for the BB final which takes place at Woburn in September.

Good luck Ben and thank you to the Wooden Spoon for all that you do to positively transform the lives of children and young people with a disability or facing disadvantage across the UK and Ireland.

Managing Director, Kevin Moran hosted the 4th annual Broster Buchanan Charity Golf Tournament on Friday 19th July, set in the stunning grounds of Edgbaston Golf Club. Three teams participated in the event with the overall winner being Ben Crabbe with a score of 36 points score, securing his place for the final at Woburn in September. The ‘Nearest the Pin’ and ‘Longest Drive’ contest was won by our very own Broster Buchanan team – James Aiton and Kevin Moran, clearly both spending far too much time on the golf course!

At the last count the day raised over £500 with more donations to come for our chosen regional charity this year. Wooden Spoon Charity is the children’s charity of Rugby, funding life-changing projects across the UK and Ireland to support children and young people with disabilities or facing disadvantage. We are delighted to be able to support such a worthy cause. The charity fund will be further increased by a silent auction, with a selection of high-end prizes up for grabs. Details are to be announced.

Broster Buchanan will be hosting the Final on the prestigious Marquess course at Woburn Golf Club in September.

This a rare opportunity to join Durham Cricket (DC) in a senior leadership position with real profile.

A unique regional asset, founded in 1882, DC joined the first class ranks in 1992. In the period since they have achieved some outstanding successes on and off the pitch. Regular trophy winners and three time County Champions, DC has an enviable record of developing players who have become cornerstones of successive England teams, whilst totally re building the Riverside ground.

DC is now entering a new period of development, both on and off the pitch, underpinned by financial stability and materially increased future revenue streams. Whilst the playing squad is likely to be enhanced, there is also a significant opportunity to develop the ground further, fully capitalising on the commercial opportunity afforded by the site.

Reporting to the CEO, the Finance Director will be a key player on the Board. The role is broad in scope, covering all the financial and managerial aspects one would envisage in a smaller but complex organisation. This will cover everything from participation in strategy through to the basics of managing a small team day to day. The Finance Director also manages a range of external relationships including those with banks and auditors, and acts as one of the key points of contact for the ECB.

Potential candidates will be qualified accountants. Key qualities will be resilience, an ability to handle multiple priorities, and work with an experienced Board driven by high standards and a desire for success. The successful candidate will possess the inherent gravitas to interact with key internal and external stakeholders.

The position could be applicable to a wide range of applicants. The Board will consider candidates who view the role as a platform for development, through to those who are much more experienced, driven purely by the unique nature of the opportunity.

Basic salary will be in the £50,000 to £60,000 range.

Patrick Smith at Broster Buchanan is handling this opportunity exclusively. Direct or third party applications will be forwarded to Patrick for consideration.
