Charlie House challenges keen golfers to get involved in a huge golfing challenge this summer.
Children’s charity Charlie House, which support babies, children and young people and their families in the North-east of Scotland, is today (Friday 30th April) calling on golf-loving fundraisers to take part in the Summer Solstice Golf Challenge, in association with Westhill Golf Club and Scott James Associates.
This exceptional golfing feat will see keen golfers tackle four rounds of golf in one day, which is 72 holes in total, to raise vital funds for the charity. The challenge will take place at Westhill Golf Club on Monday 21st June with the club generously waiving all green fees for participants.
The event will see teams of up to 4 golfers teeing off from sunrise on Monday 21st of June, which is the beginning of the Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year, as they begin play to complete the 72 holes in 24 hrs. Minimum sponsorship of £150 per person is required to take part and all entrants will receive a Charlie House t-shirt.
Jenna Simpson, Fundraising Co-Ordinator at Charlie House, says of the event, “We are delighted that both Westhill Golf Club and Scott James Associates have backed this outdoor challenge for keen golfers and Charlie House supporters. With courses around Aberdeen remaining open throughout lockdown, golf is a great way to raise vital funds for a good cause while setting yourself the ultimate challenge in your favourite sport.” She added, “Get your golf buddies together as it’s also a great excuse to spend more time on the golf course!”
Charlie House’s services which are currently being run virtually include activity clubs, siblings’ clubs, support from the Charlie House Community Nurse and one-to-one emotional and practical support from the Children & Family Support Manager. It is hoped that their bi-annual adventure trip to Kielder Forest Park, run by the Calvert Trust returns following easing of lockdown and ongoing restrictions and when it is safe to do so. All funds raised from the challenge will go on to enable the charity to continue its work and to support babies, children and young people, and their families, in the North-east of Scotland.
