I hope you are keeping safe and well. On behalf of Variety Golf, the Children’s Charity, thank you so much for supporting us this year.

It’s obviously been a challenging twelve months and with the start of our season delayed until the middle of July, we’ve had a jam-packed schedule. Having said that, every event has been a ‘sell out’ and I am delighted to say that we are on course to have presented twelve Sunshine Coaches in the six months from July to December. An amazing result bearing in mind the challenges we have had to overcome.

Rather than just give up when the Covid problem was first announced, we have worked on the basis of planning our events in advance knowing that we might have to re-schedule or even cancel them later. This has worked well for us and we intend to carry on working in the same way during the winter months and into 2021. I know we can rely on you for the same magnificent support going forward.

As things stand, we still have our Christmas Lunch, hosted by our President, Jimmy Tarbuck, at the Richmond Club on December 9th and, in the light of the second lockdown announced this week, we can only hope it will still happen. We have two Sunshine Coaches lined up to present and, if all goes well, it will be a really fun occasion and help to round up our year’s fundraising on a high note. Again, thank you all very much and I hope to see you very soon.
