Help FORE Heroes: Golf club’s fundraising reaches nearly £120,000

FERNDOWN Golf Club officials recently presented Armed Forces charity Help for Heroes with a cheque for £7,500, following their annual fundraising golf day.

It takes the club’s total raised for the Salisbury-based charity, over more than a decade, to almost £120,000.

Help for Heroes’ area fundraising manager, John Carpenter, said:

“It’s always a pleasure to meet with the members at Ferndown Golf Club. And to receive a donation like this, when we know times are not easy for some people, is particularly heart-warming.

“Our relationship with the club goes back 13 years and I hope it will continue long into the future. The charity’s income has reduced by 55 per cent since 2015, yet our services are in demand more than ever, so this is most welcome. I can’t thank them enough.”

The golf club’s assistant general manager, Sue Helliker, said:

“Members look forward to our annual Help for Heroes Day and it is a firm fixture within their golfing calendar. Each year we are overwhelmed with the generosity and support we receive and delighted that we can donate a substantial sum annually.”

Help for Heroes champions the Armed Forces community and helps them live well after service. The charity helps them, and their families, to recover and get on with their lives. It has already supported more than 27,000 people and won’t stop until every veteran gets the support they deserve.

The Charity supports veterans from any branch of the UK military – regulars or reserves – irrespective of length or place of service, and locally embedded civilians (and their families) who worked alongside our Armed Forces.
