The Millennium Raising Futures KenyaGolf Day

We raised £7,000 for Raising Futures Kenya

Despite the mixed weather conditions, including rain, clouds, beautiful blue skies, and sunshine, the Millennium Raising Futures Kenya Golf Day was a success! The event took place at Redlibbets Golf Club on Friday 14th June 2024.

The Millennium Golf Challenge brought together teams from different regions for an exciting day of golf competition. The Europe team, led by captain Clive Hunt, emerged victorious with an impressive 533 points with the USA team just behind at 492 points. Individual winners Jono Hill, Steve Williams, Kris De Pledge, and Paul Amos scored a total of 101 points in the Stableford competition.

In addition to the main competition, prizes were awarded for the longest drive and closest to the flag. Following the game, a post-round dinner took place where Leela and Kirsty from Raising Futures Kenya shared insights about the organisation and its activities, emphasising the impact of the Millennium Golf Day support. The evening continued with a fun game of heads and tails, a raffle, and an auction.

Special thanks to Avalara, Arbonne, Claretti, ICORP, Pleasant Land Distillery, and Unit4 for their generous support, which contributed to the success of the event.

Congratulations to the Europe team and all the winners!

Raising Futures Kenya

We firmly believe in our social responsibility to the wider community. That’s why, over the last 18 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.
