Thank you to the members of Windlesham Golf Club
One of the most satisfying aspects of being a Captain of our club is the opportunity to raise money, through the generosity of our members, for a chosen charity.
Last year my chosen charity was Oakleaf Enterprise, a local charity based in Guildford that helps people suffering from different forms of mental illness by providing the opportunity to learn new vocational skills, and with a variety of personal support and wellbeing programs.
During the year, our Junior Captain, Evie Kircher, helped by raising £4,000 for the chosen charity and last week Evie and I went along to Oakleaf to present them with a final cheque for the amazing sum of £19,300.
During our visit, Oakleaf’s Eli Beckett (Fundraising and Partnership Manager) shared with us how the money would be used and how it would transform the lives of their clients.
Whether it will be a course of sessions with qualified psychologists, 30 weeks of IT training, a full year’s course in upholstery, this money will help as many as 100 people rebuild their lives and livelihoods.
Thank you for your incredible generosity.
Lee Wood (Past Captain) & Evie Kircher (Junior Captain)
