We raised £4,500 for Raising Futures Kenya

There’s something about the annual Millennium Raising Futures Kenya Golf Day that seems to bring out the best in the UK weather and this year was no exception. Of course, bright sunshine is normally accompanied by grey clouds and this proved to be the case on Friday at Westerham, Kent.

The players assembled to compete for the coveted Millennium Golf Challenge trophy and this year it was the Europeans who emerged victorious, ably captained by Ray Seamer, a legend in Millennium circles.

The individual scratch winner was Gordon O’Malley on 77 and Stableford winners were Derek Mcateer and Jane Keet with 42 points apiece. Other prizes were awarded for the longest drive, closest to the flag and best turned out team.

A post-round dinner followed the golf and afterwards Kirsty Erridge of Raising Futures Kenya provided an insight into the activities taking place on the ground in Kenya and demonstrated the value of the support we provide.

Thanks are due to our corporate Sponsors, Unit4, ICorp, Hennessy IT Consulting, Sound Integration and Arbonne International as well as the gifts many of the players such as Fiskars Group and Derek Mcateer provided on the day.

Here are some of the highlights:

The day generated £4,500 for Raising Futures Kenya and the money will be put to good use helping young Kenyans.

We look forward to reconvening in 2023 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 then contact the Millennium team who will be happy to update you with the details.
