Pitch In goes abroad to the UK

Updated: Aug 15, 2023

The Bennelong Foundation UK hosted a heartwarming "Pitch In UK," at the picturesque Pine Ridge Golf Academy in Frimley. This evening brought together the Crown Golf community and representatives of various local charities for a noble cause. The event aimed to raise awareness and funds for three deserving local charities: Home-Start Surrey Heath, The Hope Hub, and Big Leaf Foundation. Each of these organizations received a share of £30,000.

A Night of Giving Back

The highlight of the evening was the "Pitch In" activity, where attendees from the Crown Golf community were invited to spend their "500 Bennelong Pounds." This currency represented a symbolic amount that each participant could allocate to one of the three charities present. Before making their decision, attendees had the opportunity to listen to passionate speakers from each charity, who explained their respective causes and how the funds would positively impact their initiatives.

The Worthy Beneficiaries

  1. Home-Start Surrey Heath: This incredible charity provides invaluable support to families in need within the Surrey Heath area. With a team of dedicated volunteers, they offer practical assistance, emotional support, and friendship to parents and children facing challenging circumstances. The funds received at the event will undoubtedly amplify their efforts to create a nurturing environment for vulnerable families.

  2. The Hope Hub: Focused on helping those experiencing homelessness, The Hope Hub strives to provide essential resources and support to individuals on their journey towards stability. Through their outreach programs, they aim to empower and rebuild lives, ensuring that nobody feels alone in their struggle. The generous contributions from the event will go a long way in making a tangible difference in the lives of this community.

  3. Big Leaf Foundation: Dedicated to fostering the personal development of young people, the Big Leaf Foundation works tirelessly to inspire and empower the next generation. By providing various educational and mentoring opportunities, they encourage positive change and personal growth. The funds received will further enable them to shape the futures of countless young individuals.

The Pitch In in the UK event at Pine Ridge Golf Academy was an uplifting and inspiring evening. The collaboration between The Bennelong Foundation UK, Crown Golf, and the three deserving charities - Home-Start Surrey Heath, The Hope Hub, and Big Leaf Foundation - exemplifies the true essence of philanthropy and the difference it can make in the lives of those facing adversity.
