Gerrards Cross Golf Club has raised over £25,000 for the Ruth Strauss Foundation (RSF). During their captains charity partnership for the 2021/22 season. The club captains; Sue Holdship and Chris North selected RSF as their chosen charity, they have done an incredible job driving the partnership and engaging members.
Over the past 12 months they have managed and delivered fundraising activations at the golf club, ranging from; a ladies’ coffee morning to duck racing! One of the highlights of the calendar year was a #RedforRuth golf competition. The golf course was dressed in red and players wore an array of red garments. The day raised a huge amount of money, with great activations across the course.
Members from Gerrards Cross also came along to the Vitality Westminster Mile, which started at The Mall and finished in front of Buckingham Palace. They joined our wave for RSF supporters and ran/walked alongside Sir Andrew Strauss. This was a fabulous day and wonderful to see a sea of red including some partners!
As well as the fundraising activations, RSF have delivered a range of presentations to Gerrards Cross members to highlight the need for pre-bereavement support within society and awareness around the need for more research into non-smoking lung cancer.
