Wellfound, a small grassroots water and sanitation charity working in Africa, held their annual Golf Day fundraiser last week at Badgemore Park Golf Club. The event was a roaring success with over £10,000 raised.
43 golfers enjoyed glorious sunshine as they made their way round the impressive golf course, eager to win the much coveted Winner’s plaque or one of the trophies. Additional evening guests arrived before a delicious three course evening meal was served, followed by an auction and raffle. Prizes included a hotel break, fast car driving experience and football tickets which meant the bids came in thick and fast.
Howard Measham, the founding trustee of WellFound, gave a short presentation on the charity’s work, explaining the difference a Well can make to a village – not only providing clean water to drink, but enabling people to grow crops, start their own small business and allowing children time to attend school. 100% of the money raised will go directly to Wellfound’s projects in Africa.
The charity would like to thank United Rental Group who sponsored the day.
