No Christmas cards – donations to charity instead!

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

For the last few years we haven’t sent Christmas cards – instead we’ve put the money towards local charities and the most recent Christmas was no different.

The Basement Project in Bromsgrove, New Hope Worcester and Dodford Childrens Holiday Farm received donations from us to fund their ongoing work. Dropping off our donations at New Hope Worcester gave us the chance to visit Jean Wilson at the thriving ’50p Shop’ in Ronkswood – an enterprising initiative for an excellent cause.

Businesses from across Worcestershire and beyond supported the event, which comprised a popular 9-hole format followed by dinner and drinks. Those who came for a round included Halls Worcester, Thursfields solicitors, SB Print, SME solicitors, Smith & Williamson, Handelsbanken, HSBC, Prosperity Wealth, Harrisons and Blackstar Sports Management.

Additional funds were raised through a raffle which saw generous prize donations from St Andrew’s Town Hotel, Droitwich, Blackstar Sports Management and Sub Studio Photography amongst others. Ollie Farr, one of our sponsored golf professionals was on hand with short game tips before tee off and faced some fierce competition on the beat the pro event – congratulations to Paul Madden for not only beating the pro but achieving nearest the pin!

It was also great to hear of New Hope’s latest award as the charity was crowned winner in the category ‘Most Outstanding Special Educational Needs Provider’, a win which saw New Hope judged against a large and diverse range of worthy charities throughout the UK.

New Hope is also holding a ball at Worcester Sixways on 20th September – it would be great to see you there!.

We recently held a charity golf day at Ombersley Golf Club raising funds for New Hope Worcester. This incredible charity provides specialist care for families looking after children with learning disabilities and was set up by Jean Wilson who herself has a disabled child.

One of our sponsored professional golfers, Ollie Farr was on hand with short game tips before tee off, plus being the one to beat on ‘Beat the Pro’. Ollie has just returned from Turkey where he won his first European Challenge Tour competition.

Says Julia Whelan, partner at Curo “We were delighted that so many Worcestershire businesses were able to suport our golf day and thanks to the generosity of all involved, New Hope can now invest in more specialist pay equipment or outings for the children”.

A raffle was also held which included prizes from St Andrews Town Hotel, Droitwich, Ombersley Golf Club, Sub Studio and Blackstar Sports.
