Hunslet Club Golf Day Set To Help Kids In Kenya

Golf enthusiasts and companies across Leeds are being encouraged to take part in the 4th annual Hunslet Club Charity Golf Tournament in aid of their twinned club in Kisumu, Kenya.

 The 18 hole competition takes place at South Leeds Golf Club on Friday July 27th and is followed by a presentation buffet dinner and is priced at £180 per team of four.

Alternatively companies can sponsor a hole on the course for just £50 raising their profile to over 80 local business representatives. 

 “The money raised by the event will help a youth club in one of the poorest districts of the third largest city in Kenya to run sports and leisure activities as well as teach street teenagers vocational skills which will help them out of poverty and into employment” explained Fundraiser Jason Slack.

 Hunslet Club Chief Executive Dennis Robbins travelled to Kenya with a local businessman who is generously funding many of the Kisumu clubs’ costs and is keen to both raise funds and share expertise with his counterparts in the African nation. “The spirit of these kids being brought up in a very different world to ours was inspirational and they really deserve the opportunities to enjoy sports, learn skills and have fun in the same way that we do here” said Dennis.
