Our progress so far: £ 10,600.00
With your help, we have raised a Grand total of £10,600.00 for the Starlight Charity and exceeded our original target of £10,500.00. Thank you
Our captains’ chosen charity for this year is the STARLIGHT Children’s Foundation. Starlight grants once-in-a-lifetime wishes for seriously and terminally ill children. Every year Starlight’s entertainment and play programmes also benefit over half a million children every year in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. Starlight wishes can cost anything from £100 for a child who wants to meet their favourite celebrity to £500 for a laptop to several thousands for an overseas adventure like swimming with dolphins. The average cost of a wish is £3,325 and every donation, however small or large, brings a sick child’s wish closer to being granted. Starlight receives neither government nor National Lottery funding and is totally reliant on donations from people like us.
There will be numerous fund raising events in both the golfing and social calendars throughout the year, from the Captains' Drive-In held on Saturday 31st March 2012 to the Captains' Putt out scheduled for Saturday March 30th 2013.
Thank you for supporting our Captains' chosen charity for 2012 - STARLIGHT Children's Foundation and help to make some of the Children's wishes come true!!!
