The Right Worshipful Lord Mayor of Southampton, Councillor Jacqui Rayment, is holding a fantastic day of golf at Southampton Municipal Golf Course on Friday 9 September to raise money for her chosen charities: City Reach Southampton, Street Pastors Southampton and Southampton Hospitals Charity.
Teams of four will battle it out on the golf course and then relax and celebrate the winners at a lunch in the clubhouse. All proceeds of the day will go to the Lord Mayor’s three chosen charities who will be giving short presentations at the lunch. Proceeds are being raised via ticket sales, sponsorship of holes on the course and a raffle.
The Right Worshipful Lord Mayor of Southampton, Councillor Jacqui Rayment, said:
“Our municipal golf course is a fantastic resource for Southampton, and I’m privileged to be able to use it to raise money for charity, with the support of our local businesses.
“Let’s get together and raise some money for my chosen Southampton-based charities whilst we enjoy and celebrate our city’s beautiful golf course.
“I would especially like to thank some of the sponsors of the day – Balfour Beatty, TJ Waste & Recycling and R&W Civil Engineering – for generously supporting our fundraising.”
Sally White, City Reach Southampton, commented:
“Being one of the Lord Mayor’s charities is amazing for a small charity like City Reach. Every penny raised will go to support young people who need our help. We are delighted that our work over a number of years has been recognised and this kind of backing means we will be able to continue to deliver for young people.”
Ray Southam, Southampton Hospitals Charity, stated:
“The Lord Mayor’s Charity Golf Day is an important event for the chosen charities as not only does it raise vital funds for each of our causes, but it allows us to establish new and build on existing relationships across our communities. Southampton Hospitals Charity exists to enhance the service provided by the NHS and allows us to be pioneering with things such as research, treatments, trial interventions or general well-being. We want our patients and staff to have access to the best possible experience whilst they are with us and, with the dedicated support of our communities, we can continue to do this.”
Mike Sarson, Street Pastors Southampton, added:
“I hope you all enjoy the Lord Mayor’s Charity Golf Day. We appreciate your generous support which will help us to continue safeguarding numerous vulnerable people at the weekends in the night-time economy; our evening patrols in the Millbrook and Shirley communities; our schools patrols which help to ensure safety of the children when leaving the schools and our work in the afternoons in the city centre which is centred upon the homeless.”
