Two of Woking’s leading local charities are set to receive a vital kick-start ahead of 2021 after the big-hearted team at Hoebridge Golf Club ‘clubbed’ together to support LinkAble and Woking Age Concern.
In a big show of determination, both the men and women’s teams have raised an unprecedented £17,000 which will help these two hardworking organisations to advance their support plans in the New Year.
Despite the impact of the pandemic and plenty of poor weather, local golfers rallied to the cause in a range of charity initiatives, with men’s team captain Tom Wesolowski even completing a 24-hour golf marathon to help bolster the money pot.
LinkAble, the men’s chosen charity will receive vital fund to aid their work in the local community, supporting adults and children with learning disabilities and autism in the Woking and Surrey Heath Area. The women’s team raised vital funds for Woking Age Concern, an independent charity working right in the heart of Woking to support vulnerable residents.
“While it’s been a challenging year for golf clubs this year, it pales in comparison with the troubles the charity sector has had to face both with fundraising and being able to get the job done,” Hoebridge Golf Club’s Tom Wesolowski said.
“LinkAble and Woking Age Concern provide a fantastic support and a service to the local community. We are honoured to have been able to help in a small way this year and immensely proud of the generosity shown by all our members. A big thank you to Hoebridge Golf Club and all its members for supporting Woking’s local charities!”
