96 golfers took part in a Charity Golf Day on 14th June 2022, raising an impressive £22K for KSS.
The event, at the London Golf Club, was our first golf day since 2019 and was supported by 24 teams from across Kent, Surrey and Sussex including local businesses Fidelity, Swale Aggregates, Duffy & Co, Crowe UK LLP, Cantium to name a few.
To mark the occasion, one of our helicopters did a flyover whilst golfers were completing their 18 holes. This was followed by an auction hosted by Sky Sports TV presenter, Peter Graves who shared celebrity stories and presented the winners Cantium with their trophies.
Julie Clare, our Head of Corporate Relations said: “I’d like to thank everyone for joining Team KSS for our annual golf day and for taking part in our live and silent auctions and four ball lottery – everyone was incredibly generous and we are very grateful for such amazing support. I’d also like to say a huge thank you to Peter Graves who expertly ran the auctions and entertained us all with his anecdotes.”
“It is brilliant to be back hosting corporate events along with lots of other in-person fundraising that we’ve been able to restart in the past year. There really is nothing like engaging and thanking our supporters face-to-face for the vital role they play in us being able to achieve our purpose to save lives and ensure the best outcomes for our patients.”
“It costs £15.2M a year to operate our cutting edge, innovative service, with 86% of our total income raised through the generosity of our supporters. Every life matters, and with support from our fundraisers, we can give every patient the best possible chance of survival and recovery.”
The event would not have been possible without the support of Fidelity International as headline sponsor and Day Aggregates and Westerhill Homes as hole sponsors. Gravesham Trophy Centre kindly donated the trophies.
