Round Table Children’s Wish set to benefit from Dorset club’s centenary year
BOURNEMOUTH-based charity Round Table Children’s Wish has been chosen to benefit from Ferndown Golf Club’s centenary year.
The club’s captain, Barrie Vincent, chose to support the organisation as he was an active member of Round Table when the charity was set up in 1990.
Round Table Children’s Wish makes dreams come true for young people with life-threatening illnesses.
The charity helps poorly children, aged between four and 17, to realise their dreams and brings magical moments and wonderful memories into their lives.
The charity has granted over 1,500 wishes since it opened, ranging from family holidays, a chance to meet a favourite celebrity, or for a child to have their very own puppy.
With the average wish costing £2,500, the money raised by Ferndown Golf Club will help to make a huge difference
The club is also supporting Pancreatic Cancer Research during its centenary.
“It’s a very special year for the club and I’m really pleased to be able to help raise money for Round Table Children’s Wish,” said Vincent. “We don’t only want to raise money for the charity, we also want to tell people what great work they do for children with life-threatening illnesses.”
Charlotte Otter, from Round Table Children’s Wish, added: “We are thrilled to be one of Ferndown Golf Club’s chosen charities.
“Without the support of corporate partners, generous individuals, community groups and clubs, we wouldn’t be able to make wishes come true for children who have often suffered a great deal.”
