Ace! Golf day raises £8k for charity

A Knowle charity supporting bereaved children has received an £8k funding boost.

The generous donation to Grief Encounter South West, which has a therapy centre in Lilymead Avenue, comes from housebuilder Wainhomes' charity golf day.

The developers has supported the charity - whose mission is to give every child and young person the best support following the death of someone close - for the last three years.

Carl Haley, managing director of Wainhomes, said: “Grief Encounter is a charity we hold close to our hearts.

“I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who helped us raise this fantastic amount and your support will make a real difference to the lives of many young people in our area.”

Richard Fogelman, CEO of Grief Encounter, said: “We are so thrilled that Wainhomes chose to support Grief Encounter South West. Their donation will help fund the extremely important bereavement services we are offering at this time.

“Demand is ever increasing as so many families experience the unimaginable, so this is a much welcome boost at such an uncertain time for charities.”
