Freebridge Tee Off For Chosen Charities!
Freebridge Community Housing held their first Golf Day in support of their chosen charities on Friday 18 September and were delighted to raise over £4,500
The community housing association held the event at Middleton Golf Course and invited employees, the tenant panel, the Board and suppliers to enter a team. All the proceeds will be added to other money raised by Freebridge throughout the year, and presented to their chosen charities - East Anglian Air Ambulance, the Macmillan Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and King’s Lynn Samaritans at the start of 2016.
56 people took part on the day, and local businesses Lovell, AC Leigh, Featherby Flooring, J and K Glass, All Clear Drainage Consultants, Gaswise, Rainbow Scaffolding, TM Browne and Malthouse sponsored holes throughout the course. There was also a raffle, with the prizes donated by Ridgeons, Plumbase, Callaway, Titliest, Brundle Builders, CGM, All Clear Drains, Your Local Paper, Heros Gym, Knights Hill Farm Shop and Imagine Spa.
Tony Hall, Chief Executive of Freebridge said: “We have been absolutely delighted with the generosity of the people and businesses who took part in the Charity Golf Day. Each year our employees choose charities for us to support and it is clear to see that people in the area are very passionate about the fantastic work they do.
“I want to thank everyone who got involved from sponsoring a hole, through to buying a raffle ticket - there are too many individuals to mention! You have each helped to play a part in creating A Better West Norfolk and raise the incredible total of over £4,500 After being such a success, I am sure we will do it again next year!”
Mary Dunn, Deputy Fundraising Co-Ordinator for East Anglian Air Ambulance went on to say: “On behalf of East Anglian Air Ambulance I would like to thank everybody at Freebridge Community Housing for choosing us as one of their charities again this year and for organising the golf day along with lots of other activities throughout the year. It is only with the support of the people of East Anglia and the staff of organisations such as Freebridge that we are able to continue our lifesaving work.’
