Fund raising

Providing support to all our UK and International projects takes a good deal of money. In the last five years we have raised over £80,000 to help us with this. This could not have been achieved without the very generous and kind support from our sponsors. These are some of the fund raising projects that we have undertaken:

Golf Day at Southwick Park

Over the past eight years our Charity Golf days have helped so many deserving causes who are, especially in these days of financial constraint, even more desperate for the support we can give them.

Our annual May Charity Golf Day is a real treat with many companies willing to sponsor the event and many golfers wanting to take part. We can take up to 27 teams. If you want to know more about the event and the format we use click HERE.

The day follows the very successful format which we have always adopted – morning and afternoon golf, buffet breakfast/lunch and an evening meal. Add to this a variety of prizes for the successful golfers and at £260 for a team of four people we are sure you agree it represents good value for money! We would also like to thank all the sponsors, for their generous support of this event.

Farmer’s Charity gets boost from Waterlooville Rotary
The Rotary Club of Waterlooville has donated £5,000 to the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institute (R.A.B.I) in memory of one of their most popular members, Joss Cleeve, who sadly passed away at the end of last year at the age of 69.
Joss was a lifelong farmer so the Rotary Club chose R.A.B.I as its nominated charity for its annual golf day. A highly successful event at Southwick Park in Hampshire brought record returns.
Organiser of the golf day and Rotary Club President Roy Wilding was taken aback by the response from players and sponsors. He said: “We pulled out all the stops to honour Joss’s memory. He was well loved by so many people, but the amount raised was way beyond our expectations and way beyond anything we’ve ever achieved before. That just shows how amazing the man was. Joss’s wife Linda wanted R.A.B.I to benefit because of the fantastic work they do for the farming community. She is clearly delighted with the outcome.”
Sally Field, R.A.B.I regional manager for the South East, added: “Joss was obviously held in high regard by so many people, it is humbling to receive such a magnificent donation in his name. We are extremely grateful to his family and friends for thinking of us.
“Rest assured, the money will be well spent, providing financial help to farming people when they are at their lowest ebb.”

Street Collections

Each Christmas to have a street collection in Waterlooville town centre to collect money from the very generous people of Waterlooville. As you can see from the following photograph the occasion is enjoyed by everyone.

These Christmas collections are supplemented by further street collections with Waterlooville to raise money for specific events or disasters. Here we are raising money for the Japanese Tsunami where in just four hours we raised over £1,000.
