En­deav­our to ben­e­fit from golf day

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

RPS Whit­sun­days handed over a do­na­tion to the En­deav­our Foun­da­tion this week as a re­sult of the funds raised from the RPS Char­ity Golf Day last month.

The En­deav­our Foun­da­tion re­ceived a cheque of $2788.50.

The foun­da­tion strives to support peo­ple with a dis­abil­ity to have the op­por­tu­ni­ties and choices of an or­di­nary life.

The money will be spread across the foun­da­tion’s dis­abil­ity and com­mu­nity ser­vices which in­cludes home and com­mu­nity care ser­vices and 24/7 support for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties and frail age.

En­deav­our Foun­da­tion sup- port and op­er­a­tions man­ager Jody Fla­herty said the or­gan­i­sa­tion was hon­oured to be the in­au­gu­ral bene­fac­tor. “It’s nice to be recog­nised in our com­mu­nity which is some­thing that is hap­pen­ing more and more. Our ser­vices are de­vel­op­ing and we have got so much support from the com­mu­nity that has been a real pos­i­tive jour­ney for us – this has just topped it off,” she said.

RPS Whit­sun­days man­ager Scott Reid said the do­na­tion was a com­bined ef­fort with the company’s more than 30 spon­sors.

“We [RPS] just re­ally want to thank each and ev­ery spon- sor for their con­tri­bu­tion,” he said. Mr Reid de­scribed the RPS Golf Char­ity Day as a suc­cess and is con­fi­dent they’ll be able to host the event yearly.

“It was a good chance for the com­mu­nity to get to­gether in a re­laxed en­vi­ron­ment and to net­work as well,” he said.

The day in­cluded 18 holes of golf, food and a pre­sen­ta­tion and net­work­ing night.

Mr Reid said their spon­sors were al­ready ea­ger to be come on board for next year’s event.

He also said that other lo­cal busi­nesses had al­ready shown great in­ter­est in be­ing part of fu­ture char­ity golf days.
