In The News

We are a long established Golfing Society, whom take great pleasure in raising money for charity.

Brian Willetts and Gary Rees Presenting a cheque to Laura from Home-Start

Home-Start is a local based charity that helps families get vital family support.

Brian recently spoke to Laura, where she informed him about a family, a single mother and three young children, who had recently been rehomed in the area. They were struggling financially and were effectively living in one room, due to the cost of energy. They had limited furniture and were having to sit on a concrete floor, unbelievable!  I am pleased to report the Society has purchased carpets for two of the rooms.  As you can imagine this will make a huge difference to the family.

We have received a lovely thank you letter from Charlies Gift, see below.

We are delighted to share that Gary has recently made a significant donation to Charlie’s Gift.  

As many of you will know, Charlie’s Gift is very personal and close to Gary’s heart. CHARLIE’S GIFT’  is a Herts based charity which provides grants of money to support local children who face challenges in life because of health issues, disability, special needs, bereavement or poverty.

Gary, spent a good deal of time speaking to the charity to establish if there were any families we could help.  We are pleased to confirm we purchased the items detailed below:

A Tomcat ‘Fizz’ Trike priced at £1,968.00

• Special needs pushchair been confirmed cost £2,168.10

 We are hoping to provide some equally good news, of some further charitable donations, that we aim to make in the next week or two.

This is Mark Thomas presenting a cheque for £2000 to Andrea Clarke of Playskill in Watford. We have supported Playskill for a few years now and they are an excellent very deserving charity who like many are finding things hard going during this pandemic but are getting on with it.
