Devon-based homebuilder Cavanna Homes successfully doubled last year’s fundraising total at its recent charity golf day for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).
Employees, contractors and suppliers took to the green at Woodbury Park, Exeter to compete in an 18-hole round and a ‘Beat the Pro Challenge’ in support of the firm’s charity of the year.
The competition was followed by a barbeque and evening auction to raise funds for the charity, which provides essential hospice care to children with life-limiting conditions and their families.
A total of £9,806 was raised from ticket sales, donations and the evening auction, which is enough to pay for 500 hours of vital care.
Melanie Potter, Head of Cavanna Homes’ Social and Charity Committee said: “Last year’s golf day was such a success, so to have run it again and raised over double the amount we did in 2021 is just brilliant.”
Mary Gray, Area Fundraiser for the charity, said: “Cavanna Homes is an incredible supporter of Children’s Hospice South West and we’re thankful to everyone who attended or donated a prize for the auction to help raise funds for our charity."
Cavanna Homes has been fundraising and sponsoring events for CHSW since 2019 and in that time has raised more than £60,000 to support the essential care they provide. The company will continue fundraising for the children’s charity throughout 2023.
