FoodBank SA is grateful for the support they’ve received from the Nedbank SA Charity Golf Day.
The Nedbank Charity Golf Day holds a golfing event every year to raise funds for a number of worthy causes across South Africa. Last month the event made a generous contribution to FoodBank SA in order to sponsor several of the beneficiary organisations supported by FoodBank SA for a full year.
The Nedbank Charity Golf Day has given FoodBank SA ongoing support and assistance and the support they offer the organisations they sponsor has a huge impact in the lives of the people receiving support from the organisations. In the 17 years that the event has taken placed they have managed to raise an impressive £1.3 million, all of which goes to charity.
The organisation believes that everyone can play their part in helping to provide ongoing financial support for sustainable, multipurpose and life-changing projects that will simultaneously nurture holistic childhood development and help to end the poverty cycle in vulnerable communities in South Africa.
Golfing in Europe
This year’s event is taking place on the 16th September 2016 at the beautiful Burhill Golf Club in Surrey. The Nedbank Charity Golf Day is the biggest golf tournament of its kind in Europe. For those who are interested you can spend the day with friends while supporting the outstanding works being done by all of the recipient charities in South Africa.
What golfing did for FoodBank SA?
The Nedbank Charity Golf Day donation has been allocated to our Sponsor a Beneficiary Organisation Programme, where the money is used to cover the cost of providing food, toiletries and detergents to the organisations they have selected. These organisations include homes for disabled children, early childhood development centres and homes for the aged. They now sponsor 11 of FoodBank SA’s organisations which supports 528 hungry South Africans.
