Success at the Finish Line
Over the last few months Strode Park Foundation has organised a couple of events with a distinctly sporting feel in order to raise money for the people with disabilities who use the services.
For the first time in a number of years a Golf Day was held at Whitstable and Seasalter Golf Course on 13 September followed by a Charity Race Day to watch the motorcycle racing at Brands Hatch on 6 October.
Both events attracted attendees from a variety of local community groups and businesses, in particular the Charity Race Day which was enjoyed by members of the Widows Sons East Kent Bikers Association.
Organiser of the events, Sarah Bingham, says “both events created a great opportunity to be able to develop relationships with current supporters as well as to fundraise. The Charity Race Day was really exciting and four of the guests also got to ride in the race course car. The Golf Day was another fantastic event with a game of golf and a dinner supported by several teams. The winning team on the day were from the Copper Pottle, a local micro pub who are keen supporters of Strode Park and have themselves raised thousands of pounds for us over the past few years.”
In total, both events have raised more £1,000 which will go directly towards helping the people with disabilities supported by Strode Park Foundation.
We are in the process of organising further events for 2020 with a date already set for a Golf Day at Cave Hotel & Golf Resort, Boughton on Thursday 21 May.
