Golf Challenge News Article

On May 28, golfers in Winchester came together to compete in a tough 72-hole golfing challenge, all in support of the golf club’s charity of the year, Winchester Youth Counselling. The event, which took place at the Royal Winchester Golf Club, saw participation from 8 golfers, raising both awareness and crucial funds for the vital services provided by the charity.

Stewart Hawthorn, captain of Royal Winchester Golf Club, organised the event with support from local businesses such as The Stables, St James Tavern, and Turtle Bay. There was also special thanks to a number of club members, who braved the weather to caddy which provided some much-needed support.

The funds raised from the event will go directly towards Winchester Youth Counselling’s initiatives, ensuring that more young people can access the counselling and therapy services they need.

As at 9th June 2024 the amount raised stands at £2,818, such a fantastic amount! The fundraising page is still open, and welcoming donations.
