Golfers gather at Old Thorns Hotel to raise funds for Treloar’s
Last month, over 65 keen golfers gathered at Old Thorns Hotel to take part in Treloar’s Charity Golf Day, which combined a day of golf with fundraising for Treloar’s. Dodging the rain showers, the participants enjoyed a great day of golf and raised over £11,000 to support physically disabled young people at Treloar School and College.
The event started with players arriving early in the morning at Old Thorns Hotel in Liphook and being greeted with a breakfast roll and coffee, they were then able to use the putting green to prepare for a 72-hole golfing marathon.
Having completed the game, everyone enjoyed a delicious carvery meal followed by a raffle, auction and stories about the fantastic work of Treloar’s from Ryan Campbell, Treloar’s CEO, together with an inspiring film about the amazing progress made by Elin, one of the Treloar’s Primary students.
Elin has been coming to Treloar School for four years. She has cerebral palsy, which means she is unable to walk. Elin is unable to stand independently, and when she first came to Treloar’s she was tube fed, was non-verbal, and wasn’t expected to talk.
The combination of specialist support on offer at Treloar’s for Elin has helped her go from being unable to talk, to being one of the chattiest children in class. She is encouraged all the time to use her voice and express herself, and is now even able to eat and drink by herself. This is simply life-changing for Elin and her family, and none of this could be achieved without the ongoing generosity of our funders and supporters who take part in events like the Golf Day. The Treloar’s team is so grateful to everyone who took part.
This year’s event was sponsored by long-standing Treloar’s supporters: HSF, also supporting were Site Equip who sponsored the longest drive competition, Liaise sponsoring the Nearest the Pin Competition and several hole sponsors: Citizen Watch UK, Hamilton George Care, Mzuri, Start Support for You and Three59. The Treloar’s team would like to thank everyone that supported the day.
Our amazing fundraisers make a real difference to the lives of the young people here at Treloar’s.
You can help in many ways: run a marathon, play our weekly TRELOTTERY, climb a mountain or run a quiz, the possibilities are endless!
