Ransomes Jacobsen supports new golfing talent

A leading turf-care machine maker has sponsored an up-and-coming young sportsman to reach the peak of his game.

Ipswich-based Ransomes Jacobsen awarded a £500 cheque to talented golfer Hugo Dobson, who won the national schools under-16 golf championship in 2006.

This season he came in the top 10 at the Carris, Fairhaven and MacGregor trophies and was selected for England under-18 boys.

Dobson joins another young golfer, 14-year old Heidi Baek, who is the current national under-15 girls' champion and who also received help from Ransomes Jacobsen.

Hugo Dobson is being supported by the Suffolk SportsAid Foundation, which promotes the county's leading sporting talent.

As a "gold supporter" of the foundation, Ransomes Jacobsen awards cash sponsorship to young sporting hopefuls.
