Burhill Golf Club on course for £9,000 donation to Hersham Scouts

February 13, 2013

Burhill Golf Club's kind-hearted members and visitors have helped raise a staggering £8,500 for the 2012 Captains' Charity - 1st Hersham Scout Group.

With funds going towards the building of the group's new and improved headquarters, incumbent captains - Ronnie Ingram (Men's) and Susan Sadler (Ladies') - are hoping to reach a grand total of £9,000 before the end of their term on February 17, 2013.

The new HQ will be a focal point of the community, not only serving beavers, cubs and scouts but also offering a first class facility to other local charities, groups and organisations.

Ronnie Ingram said: "The Burhill members and staff have been fantastic with their support for this great cause and the Lady Captain and I are incredibly grateful to everyone who has participated in any of our fundraising effort.

"We would also like to thank Sunrise Senior Living of Weybridge for sponsoring the Captains' Charity Day, which was attended by more than 100 golfers donating in excess of £3,000."

The region's golfers have attended and supported numerous fundraising events and activities at Burhill Golf Club - part of BGL Golf, the UK's leading golf course owner and operator - helping amass the impressive total over the course of a year.

David Cook, Burhill Golf Club General Manager, added: "Both members and visitors have generously donated tens of thousands of pounds at countless charitable events held at Burhill over the years. It is pleasing to see an organisation dedicated to local youngsters, receiving the support of the community.
