MORE than 120 people pitched in to raise £30,000 for a charity that helps families with children with life limiting or life-threatening conditions.

The Bewley Homes’ charity golf day, at the Sandford Springs Hotel & Golf Club in Tadley, raised over £30,000 for Sebastian’s Action Trust. 

Basingstoke-based Bewley welcomed golfers, made up from subcontractors and suppliers, who teed off at the event which included various competitions held throughout the day and an auction that also helped raise thousands of pounds.

The ‘Beat the Commercial Director’ par 3 hole was eagerly competed as it pitted every golfer against Bewley Homes’ commercial director Simon Taphouse.

Simon said: “It was a great day and to raise over £30,000 for Sebastian’s Action Trust was a wonderful achievement. We would like to thank everyone who attended and for showing such generosity for this amazing charity who we are supporting once again.”

Andrew Brooks, managing director at Bewley Homes, said: “It was fantastic to be able to hold our first golf day since 2019 due to the impact of Covid.

"This year it was even more important to raise as much money as possible for a charity that we have been associated with for almost 20 years. Their ability to raise funds during the Covid years was severely restricted, whilst the demand for the important work they do only became greater.

“I would like to extend my thanks to Richard Dance, who continues to support us by holding the auction and provides much humour for the evening. Thanks also to all the teams that supported us, especially those that dug deep during the auction and also provided auction prizes.”

Sebastian’s Action Trust offers a programme of free support to families with children with life limiting or life-threatening conditions. In the last year the Trust has supported more families than ever through respite breaks, outreach and specialist services together with events that connect its families.

Simon Lillywhite from Sebastian’s Action Trust added: “Once again, a huge thank you to Bewley Homes for this amazing fundraising total which will continue to go towards supporting families in who need our specialist support.”
