A special fundrasing event at Caldy Golf Club has raised £4,000 in aid of the UTS Foundation.
It was a wonderful day for golf as a light breeze accompanied the 23 teams of golfers onto the picturesque course, all having great fun on the day but on the serious side all taking time to participate in an the golf event, followed by dinner and fundraising, and the winner on the day was The UTS Foundation as over £4,000 was raised.
The Caldy Captain thanked all the members of Caldy Golf Club for allowing him to use the course on the day for his charity, but also to everyone who played, donated prizes for the raffle and auction.
The UTS (Underground Training Station) Foundation offers a range of specific and targeted fitness, health and well being activities for the most vulnerable members of our community; including (post) cancer care, mental ill health, special needs, disadvantaged children and adults and ex-military veterans.
It currently works in partnership with a range of agencies, such as GP's, Wirral NHS, police and PCSO's, youth service, youth offending teams, schools, colleges and sports clubs to deliver a holistic programme of structured fitness session with nutritional guidance to help support these people develop, learn and grow, whilst improving their quality of life.
In addition it wants those young people who attend Foundation projects to develop skills and literacy in physical education which will allow them to become better athletes in whatever sport they chose, but more importantly develop the skills that are needed to help them better individuals with transferable skills, such as confidence, resilience, discipline and respect.
It will offer practical skills to overcome adversity as well as support, reassurance and a platform to improve their health, well being and quality of life though a long term programme of delivery.
