Marathon drive for children’s hospices
Kestrel's Regional Sales Director for the North, John Gunn, is teeing off on a marathon (26 miles) sponsored golf challenge this month to support children’s hospices.
On June 20 - the longest day - John and 15 fellow ‘fools’ will be on the tee at The Carrick on Loch Lomond for sunrise at 5.30am sharp eventually carting their clubs away at 11pm!
The sponsored golf marathon is raising funds for CHAS – Children’s Hospices Across Scotland – which offers palliative care, family respite and support for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions.
John said: “It may sound like a bit of a jolly, but you can be rest assured that this is tough, and all 16 participants will be feeling the pain at the end of it and for a few days after.
“Whether a couple of quid or if you are lucky enough to be in the position to give a little more please do. It’s an incredible charity, providing vital support and after such an unprecedented year for health services, they need our support more than ever.”
At time of writing the team had raised an impressive £1500 for CHAS, just £500 off their goal. Find out more about John’s marathon golf challenge at: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/16-fools-of-the-carrick
