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 for details and registration.
