Devon golf day raises over £12,000 for children’s charity
A charity golf day in East Devon, made possible through the support of local businesses, has raised £12,109 for Life Education Wessex, a charity which delivers vital health, wellbeing and drug education in Devon’s schools.
The event at Woodbury Park Golf Club in July raised much-needed funds to support the charity’s work with children in schools.
A great day was had by all. For the second year running, CAP Ceilings & Partitions generously sponsored the event and the ‘hole in one’ competition, ensuring the day was a great fundraising success. Barclays provided match-funding and volunteers from the bank helped make the day run smoothly.
Lorraine Hewitt, LEW’s Fundraising Manager said,
“We are delighted with the support of everyone who contributed to our Devon golf day, particularly our sponsors. Our aim is to reach every child in Devon through local primary schools with our message of healthy living. This fantastic support will help us to make a real difference.”
The charity was overwhelmed by the support of the following local companies:
VP Plc, Encon, St Austell, Rockfon, Fine-Film Ltd, James Pryce Tractors Ltd, Westward Joinery, Armstrong, SIG, Nash Consultancy, Jewsons Tiverton and Minster Insulation, who sponsored holes, and to Heavitree Brewery who kindly donated the Cider Tree.
