The Millennium Raising Futures Kenya Golf Day round up

We raised £5,000 for Raising Futures Kenya

It's always amazing how the weather seems to cooperate during the Millennium Raising Futures Kenya Golf Day. This year was no exception - the bright sunshine was a sight to behold. However, as is typical with the UK weather, grey clouds loomed in the distance. Nonetheless, it was a fantastic day at Sittingbourne Golf Club in Kent.

It was an exciting day for golf enthusiasts as players from different teams gathered to compete for the coveted Millennium Golf Challenge trophy. The USA team emerged victorious this year, with Ray Seamer leading the way as their captain and scoring an impressive 489 points. The team’s Stableford winners were Ben Hunt, Matthew Hunt, Sonny Merril, and Stephen May, who scored a total of 94 points.

Aside from the main competition, other prizes were also awarded for the longest drive and closest to the flag. Four players even managed to beat the professional in the Beat the Pro competition – Tom Edmonds, Mark Barnard, David Blake, and Maartin Heukshorst.

After the game, the players gathered for a post-round dinner where Jane Keet shared an insight about Raising Futures Kenya and the activities taking place on the ground in Kenya. She also highlighted the value of the Millennium golf day support. The dinner was followed by a raffle and auction, which raised a great amount.

The success of the event was made possible by the generous support of Unit4, ICORP, and Arbonne International.

Congratulations to the USA team and all the winners!

Here are some of the highlights:

The day generated £5,000 for Raising Futures Kenya and the money will be put to good use helping young Kenyans.

We look forward to reconvening in 2024 for the next event, and the date and location will be announced in the coming months. We welcome new participants, so if you would like to play next year, contact the Millennium team, who will be happy to provide you with the details.

We firmly believe in our social responsibility to the wider community. That’s why, over the last 17 years, we have supported Raising Futures Kenya – a charity that breaks the cycle of inequality and creates opportunities for vulnerable children and young people in Kenya.

Raising Futures Kenya is the charity working together with young people to create opportunities for rewarding futures. Without these opportunities, one in five young people in Kenya face living in poverty; unable to reach their potential.
