On Friday the 14th of October, we held our annual Golf Day fundraiser at the Grange Golf Club. We had 54 attendees that included staff from local colleges and Uniting Church care providers. As always, our Golf Day is a fun day out of the office, all while raising funds for a good cause.
Attendees ranged from the more serious and committed golfers, to those who were just there for some good fun. We were glad to see all of the participants really get into the excitement of the day. There were raffles, tee-off payment items, dress up stations and money tins at selected holes for donations. All helping us to achieve our fundraising goal of $10,000 for our grant recipient.
As a result, the funds raised from the day and additional support from UC Invest totalled $10,000. These funds were donated to Clayton Church Homes in the form of a grant – to support their work in the aged care community. Clayton Church Homes provides residential aged care and retirement living, catering for the varied demands of the aged care community in South Australia.
Clayton Church Homes plan to use the funds to renovate two of their chapels, at the Magill and Elizabeth Park sites. The chapels are located on-site and available to residents of different denominations. The funds will allow Clayton Church Homes to create a more inviting and spiritually engaging space for their residents. This will include the purchase of new artefacts around the chapel, as well as furnishings – to enhance the space where residents can go to have some time to themselves.
We would like to thank our sponsors for their ongoing support of this event; FIIG Securities, Westpac Business, Nexia Edwards Marshall and Elstree Investment Management.
