Teeing off for Flutterby Fund
CLUBBING TOGETHER: Charity golfers get ready for an 18-hole match at Stoneham Golf Club, Southampton. The event, which raised £5,000, was organised by Trant Engineering in aid of the Flutterby Fund in Hampshire. A children’s charity in Hampshire is to benefit from a golf day which raised £5,000.
Twenty golfers from the engineering and construction sectors took part in the fundraiser, organised by Trant Engineering.
To date nearly £50,000 has been raised by the multi-disciplinary contractor, which employs 1,000 staff, for the Flutterby Fund.
The charity helps improve the lives of physically and mentally impaired children, from low-income families, in a relaxed atmosphere at Sophia’s House, a treatment clinic in Bursledon, near Southampton.
Stoneham Golf Club in Southampton played host to the latest fundraiser by Trant Engineering, with 18 holes played by five teams of four.
Patrick Trant, Trant Engineering’s Chairman and a trustee of the Flutterby Fund, said: “The work done at Sophia’s House for children with difficulties is nothing short of phenomenal.
“The cause is close to our hearts at our workplace – a member of staff has a child who benefits from Sophia’s House and we can see first-hand what a positive difference the charity makes.
“Regular intensive therapy is not always available on the hard-pressed NHS, which is where Flutterby steps in, helping children with special needs spread their wings.”
