The Golf Foundation has participated in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2021 and has raised £ 4,000 in just one week for a special project to help children of different backgrounds grow in golf.
This project will bring golf to communities that will greatly benefit from the support of national charities. Working closely with PGA professionals at local golf facilities, young people from local schools and community groups will discover golf for the first time.
A fun and comprehensive golf session is first offered to young people in a familiar environment. The PGA Professional will then follow up on golf at a local golf venue, breaking down barriers to young people who enjoy golf facilities while providing continuity.
The project culminates in a highly competitive inter-school / club festival. All young people can interact and build friendships while discovering the key elements and benefits of golf as a team sport, including valuable life skills.
Donations to this project will be generously matched by Golf Foundation supporters and the charity “Big Give Champion” Reed Foundation during the campaign. This means that your money can support twice as many children and adolescents. One donation, double the impact!
Vanessa Bell, Head of Financing for the Golf Foundation, said: This year, we will raise funds to provide young people in disadvantaged areas with the opportunity to introduce golf and participate in projects that ignite excellent life skills such as self-confidence, patience and leadership. We also provide golf equipment and training to teachers and community club leaders so that golf is a regular part of our activities. This is a very exciting opportunity for our charity. “
The Golf Foundation aims to raise a total of £ 4,000 in a week. To access the £ 2,000 that the Foundation has in the matching pot, the team must raise £ 2,000 with an online donation.
Bell states: Our team is very grateful for any donations, regardless of size. “
