Lewes Golf Club Captain, John Clark presented a cheque for £2500 to The Bevern Trust.
John Clark’s Charity Golf Day was supported by the generosity of members at Lewes Golf Club and will directly support the charity who care for vulnerable people in Sussex with profound disabilities.
Chief Executive Jonathan Spencer said, ”As a local charity, we see wonderful acts of kindness and support, but to receive a gift like this from John Clark and Lewes Golf Club is absolutely fantastic and will make a huge difference to the lives of the people we care for.
”As we grow and will soon start to provide home care to disabled people in Sussex, we will look to more organisations and groups like this to help raise the funds we need to care for more local people.
”Our thanks go to John and all at Lewes Golf Club for their generous support.”
John Clark said ” The Captain at Lewes is in office for one year and an important part of the role is the Captain’s choice of charity. I chose the Bevern Trust because I had heard such good things about the work they do. When I visited them, I was so impressed with the set up and their care for profoundly disabled people.
“The money was raised by a Captain’s Day Charity Competition and the Rotary Club of Lewes organise a Charity Golf Day too and generously give a donation from the money they raise to the Captain’s Charity at The Golf Club. We also asked any member playing, who hit in to the nominated ‘Captain’s Bunker’, to make an extra donation!
The Bevern Trust would like to work with more golf clubs and organisations around Lewes who would like to support a local charity. Call us on 01273 021241 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Each month we need to raise at least £15,000 to allow people with profound disabilities more freedom and opportunity to live their lives in abundance.
