Golfers in Ferndown will be raising funds for the John Thornton Young Achievers Foundation this year.
The ladies’ captain at Ferndown Golf Club has chosen the Ferndown based charity as her charity of support for 2023.
Julie Richardson, ladies’ captain, said: “When I was looking for a charity to support, something about the JTYAF and the work they do with young people resonated with me. On meeting Pete and Linda (Thornton), my decision was cemented. I am really looking forward to working with the JTYAF over the coming 12 months.”
Shortly after announcing her chosen charity, Julie and her team from the Ladies Section at Ferndown organised a Christmas Fayre in support of the JTYAF. It was a spectacular event with an incredible array of Christmas gifts, goodies, decorations, jewellery, handbags, glitzy outfits and shoes. The members and guests were extremely generous, and the event well supported.
Pete Thornton said: “Without the support of people like Julie and Ferndown Golf Club, the JTYAF wouldn’t be able to do the great work that it does with young people. They need our support now more than ever before.
“We can’t thank Julie and her team enough, as this partnership will make a huge difference to the opportunities that the JTYAF can provide.”
