The Easthamp­stead Ro­tary Char­ity Golf Day has been gen­er­ously sup­ported by lo­cal com­pa­nies over the years, some like Grun­don have been reg­u­lar spon­sors.

This year’s event was co-spon­sored by Crowthorne In­surance Ser­vices Lim­ited.

Many other lo­cal donors pre­sented gifts in kind.

Grun­don is the UK’s largest fam­i­ly­owned sup­plier of in­te­grated waste man­age­ment and en­vi­ron­men­tal so­lu­tions and is head quar­tered in Walling­ford, Ox­ford­shire.

The pri­mary ben­e­fi­cia­ries this year will be Me2 Club and Youth­line, plus other Easthamp­stead Ro­tary char­i­ties.

Me2 Club en­ables chil­dren with ad­di­tional needs from across Wokingham Bor­ough to ac­cess main­stream leisure ac­tiv­i­ties. Man­ager, Tess Ea­gles, thank­ing Easthamp­stead Ro­tar­i­ans for choos­ing Me2 Club ex­plained “Some chil­dren can’t do ev­ery­thing they want, and can feel iso­lated.

Me2 Club cre­ates the op­por­tu­nity for them to do the ev­ery­day fun things we all en­joy. The chil­dren are able to join in with the ac­tiv­i­ties en­joyed by their peers. This can be go­ing to cubs, brown­ies, swim­ming, or drama.”

Youth­line pro­vides a FREE, con­fi­den­tial coun­selling ser­vice for young peo­ple at­tend­ing sec­ondary school, and young adults up to the age of 25 across Brack­nell For­est Bor­ough.
