Millennium Raising Futures Kenya Golf Day 2020

 Millennium Raising Futures Kenya Golf Day

September 29th, 2020

Following postponement in June on account of COVID-19, the annual Millennium Consulting Raising Futures Kenya Golf Day finally got underway last Friday at Surrey National Golf Club.

Millennium has supported Raising Futures Kenya (formerly Vision Africa) for over 15 years and thanks are due for the support of our corporate sponsors and the players who took part including special guest, former World Light Heavyweight Boxing Champion John Conteh.

The players faced cold weather, high winds but thankfully no rain. It was a Ryder Cup style Europe v USA team competition with the US team captained by Clive Hunt emerging as winners. The 4 ball team prize was won by Jono Hill’s team whilst Matt Sutton won the individual stableford prize with a creditworthy 41 points. Closest to the flag was Tom Edmonds whilst the longest drive was achieved by James Conteh who clearly packs a punch in common with his father John Conteh.

Following the golf and post round dinner, a short presentation was provided by Andy King, Board of Trustees Chair at Raising Futures Kenya, who shared an update about how the funds raised in 2019 have been spent. He explained that with lockdown forcing the closure of all Seed of Hope centres, the team has adapted their education programmes to provide young Kenyans with distance learning via smartphones. This has been a successful initiative although additional smart phones (costing £43 each) are needed so that the program can be extended to a larger number of students.

£3,000 was raised for the charity and we look forward to hearing how the funds are being used when we meet again next year. If you are interested in taking part in 2021 then please refer to www.millenniumconsulting.com for details and registration.

Millennium Raising Futures Kenya Golf Day

 Millennium Raising Futures Kenya Golf Day

September 13th, 2019

It was a sun-filled September day in Westerham when the Millennium “Raising Futures Kenya” golf day took place. The event was well supported by the payers and special guest, former World Light heavyweight Boxing Champion John Conteh, accompanied by his son James, adding sporting pedigree, physical presence and golfing prowess.

There were prizes aplenty with the European team once more emerging victorious in the Stableford overall team event. Other winners included William Hill – led by Steve Gant – who won the 4 ball Stableford prize.

The individual scratch score prize was won by Joe Jezzard of Osella Technology with a score of 75, closely followed by Colin Stansbury of Avalara with 76.

The longest drive was won by Jono Rawlings of Arthur J Gallagher, with Joe Jezzard also winning the nearest the flag prize.

Following the golf and post round dinner, a short presentation was provided by Andy King, Board of Trustees Chair at Raising Futures Kenya, who shared news from around how the funds raised at the 2018 golf event were put to good use. Tales of children helped and their subsequent journeys brought to life the tangible outcome arising from the funds previously raised. Overall the golf day raised £2,000 on the day, a sum which will be put to good use by the Raising Futures Kenya team.

Millennium Consulting CEO Phil Keet expressed his thanks to the corporate sponsors, including Avalara, Bang and Olufsen and Arbonne International as well as John Conteh and the players who took part. Phil will be visiting Kenya in 2020 to gain first-hand insight into the work being carried out on the ground by Raising Futures Kenya and will provide an update for the players taking part at the 2020 event.

If you are interested in taking part in 2020 then please refer to our events page for information. Rumour has it that the event may be taking place at the illustrious Sunningdale course….


London to Hythe Expedition Successfully Navigated

London to Hythe Expedition Successfully Navigated

October 28th, 2017

On Saturday, 28th October 2017, an energetic group of Millennium Consulting employees and associates completed a gruelling 80 mile bike ride from Trafalgar Square, London to the south Kent coast, in support of Vision Africa.

Setting off from Nelson’s Column, where Horatio Nelson is honoured for his remarkable victories, they too sought to navigate their way through the beautiful Kent countryside to the high seas of Hythe. Having luckily avoided Storm Brian which struck the UK the previous weekend, conditions were sunny but chilly for the 8:30 early morning start. It was idyllic cycling weather.

After the obligatory pre-journey team photo (above), the group set off on the trickiest part of the ride, navigating a route out of Central London. Jon Durrant and Andy Ostle made a quick getaway although unfortunately for them, it was in the wrong direction which added an additional 5 miles to their journey. The other riders peeled off into smaller groups and headed south towards the first checkpoint at Sevenoaks, around 28 miles from the start.

The promise of coffee and cake was enough to power everyone through the most undulating part of the ride and the busy “A” roads. For Dave Callanan, Duncan Howitt and Sara Carter it included a close encounter with the M25 which was not part of the original route plan. When the ‘Easy Riders’ arrived at Sevenoaks, they were met by the support team car laden with welcome ‘goody bags’ containing much needed drinks and chocolate. There was, however, no sign of the ‘F1’ riders, who were long since gone. The leisurely break also provided Duncan Howitt with the opportunity to acquire an additional passenger, who was happy to help him navigate from his lofty position perched on his shoulders (see picture below).

Having split up into smaller groups once again for the next leg, a variety of routes were taken which in some cases added even more miles. However everyone arrived eventually at the second stop in Staplehurst. After resuming the planned route, Jon Durrant and Andy Ostle were joined by Ross Richardson in Staplehurst, however, their rapid journey meant they arrived before the support team and unfortunately missed the refreshments available for the later group. The three of them continued regardless through the final 30 miles, arriving in Hythe at 2.15 p.m. an impressive five and a half hours. Brendan Shaw who was forced to ride without directions and a flat phone battery was next to arrive at around 2.45 p.m.

Next up was Rupert ‘The Lone Ranger’ Aspey who having lost the main group on the outskirts of London, made great progress on his own and with limited local knowledge, no map or directions and only his phone for company crossed the finishing line at 3:15 p.m.

The “Easy Riders” remained together most of the way through the last leg, only splitting up 10 miles from home. They all arrived at the finishing line around 5.00 p.m. with aching legs and a raging thirst. A cold beer never tasted quite so good!

A great time was had by all and most importantly over £1,000 was raised for Vision Africa. Thank you to the participants, Andy Ostle, Brendan Shaw, Dave Callanan, Duncan Howitt, John Hemphrey, Jon Durrant, Jon Shillibeer, Louise Hemphrey, Morag Hards, Phil Hards, Phil Keet, Ross Richardson, Rupert Aspey, Sara Carter and Steve Pierce.
