Charities

Although this is not the Club’s primary function, service to the community often involves raising funds to support particular projects.  Our Club is proud of its achievements, having raised over £300,000 since we were formed.

For the last few years we, under the leadership of Mike Andrews,  have been working in partnership with the Longsands College 6th Form team, to support a home for abused Boys and Girls in Kenya run by Play Kenya.  We recently presented a cheque for £9000.00 to the Charity.

One of the fundraising highlights is always the Annual Sportsman’s Night, which is held in March every year. This event features dinner, followed by two speakers – one a well-known sporting figure, the other a comedian. It is always sold out and raises several thousand pounds each year.

Another popular annual event is the Town Mayor’s Charity Golf Day, which we organise, in partnership with the Mayor each August with the help and support of the management of Wyboston Lakes Golf and Leisure Centre and the continuing support and sponsorship from many local businesses.
