Golf day boost charity
NEARLY £10,000 has been raised at a golf and angling day for a charity helping injured service personnel.
More than 100 competitors took to the green and fishing lake at Stoke by Nayland Golf Club to raise funds for Help for Heroes and Chavasse VC House – the personnel recovery centre for wounded soldiers at Colchester Garrison.
The annual event, which is now in its third year at the club, was organised by UK Power Networks staff and attended by about 137 staff and contractors along with their family and friends.
Steve Schollar, Help for Heroes’ general manager at the recovery centre at Merville barracks, said: “I am moved by the continuing generosity of groups and individuals in their support for Help for Heroes and in particular for the work we undertake at the centre in Colchester.
“UK Power Networks employee’s kindness and consideration in giving up their time to raise such a significant sum is a perfect example of this."
