Tim and I had a thoroughly good day out last week playing in the Wincor Nixdorf charity golf day. I use the word ‘playing’ loosely because, despite all of our efforts to hone our skills beforehand it would have taken a tiger like effort to get anywhere close to the winning score or should I say scores. Our combined score was close but unfortunately only 1 score counted on the day.
Tim had better luck in the raffle as he came second. Back in the office, nobody asked him how he won his prize on the golf day so mums the word OK!
Wincor raised an impressive £1,893.50 on the day and this was split equally between the two charities Keech Hospice Care and Rainbow Trust children’s charity who both received £946.75 each.
Keech Hospice Care
Keech Hospice Care supports and cares for children from Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes and adults from Luton and south Bedfordshire. They believe that no one should have to face a life-limiting or terminal illness alone. As a charity, Keech Hospice Care depends on 70% of its funding to come from the community for its survival. www.Keech.org.uk
Caron Hooper from Keech Hospice said, ““What a wonderful donation! This would equate to just over a month’s worth of running costs for our Sparklers Club. I hope this brings to light what a wonderful donation like yours means to Keech to our patients and their families”
Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity
Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity supports families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness. For these families, life is unthinkably tough. Their lives are shattered into a million pieces as they struggle to cope with the possibility that their child might die. They have nine teams of Family Support Workers who support the whole family, in a place of their choice. Their family support workers go wherever they are needed, helping in any way they can, to make life just a little bit easier. Because of their support, families are better able to cope and can face the future, whatever it may hold. www.rainbowtrust.org.uk
Sophie Peckham from Rainbow Trust added, “Thank you so much to everyone who supported the golf day. This donation means a lot to the charity and will enable us to provide almost 40 hours of vital support from one of our Family Support Workers, like Amelia.”
