Every year ITRM help organise the Bexley Moorings Golf Day. This year, on the 16th September, 20 teams of 4 players set out at Pedham Place Golf Course, making this year’s event the largest so far.
Despite the terrible weather the players marched on with their umbrellas, some lucky enough to have some much needed hot teas and coffees bought to them on the course.
Most happy to finish their games and change out of their sodden clothing, teams enjoyed a 3 course meal followed by a charity auction and raffle.
Some fantastic prizes were kindly donated for this year’s event. These included; a 2 ball at Wentworth Golf Course donated by Mark Thorpe of Thomson Reuters, a three course meal donated by Glenn Wilders of the Hand &Sceptre in Tunbridge Wells, a signed CAFC shirt donated by Charlton Athletic Community Trust, an invitation to attend a CAFC training session donated by Charlton Athletic Football Club and many more.
The event proved to be a great success and, in total, just over £3400 was raised with all funds going directly to support the Bexley Moorings Project.
The Bexley Moorings Project supports over 200 young people within the Borough of Bexley through one to one work and group activities. The young people supported are vulnerable and are referred from a variety of sources including social services and schools. The Project helps to get children engaged and builds upon their confidence to allow them to achieve things that at one time would have seemed impossible. Recently the Moorings Project have suffered a funding cut from the Council and now rely heavily on the commitment of their fantastic team of volunteers and fundraising events such as their annual golf day.
ITRM work very closely with the Bexley Moorings Project and will continue to play a role in helping them with their future fundraising activities. The results of their hard work are truly fantastic and we are committed to helping them achieve these. We thank everyone who attened the event, those who kindly donated auction and raffle prizes and the organisers for making it happen.
