The 360 Grassroots Foundation and Hull & East Yorkshire Powerchair Football Club are teaming up again for their third Footgolf Charity event – and organisers say it is going to be bigger and better than ever.
The two charities have raised over £3000 in total over the last two years from the Footgolf Days. They have proven to be so popular that they are putting on two sessions during the day at their next event to double their fundraising efforts and give even more local businesses, individuals and families the opportunity to get involved.
Teams of four are now being invited to sign up to play nine holes of Footgolf at their next event in April 2024. All proceeds are split equally between both causes.
The 360 Grassroots Foundation supports under privileged and disadvantaged children to access grassroots sports in Hull while the Hull & East Yorkshire PFC, also known as the Electric Eels, aims to give disabled people of all ages and genders the chance to play powerchair football at a competitive or recreational level.
Andy Steele, Director of 360 Chartered Accountants, which set up the 360 Grassroots Foundation, said:
“The cost of running the Eels is increasing all the time and the 360 Grassroots Foundation is being inundated with requests to help children access sports who would otherwise have stopped playing because of the cost-of-living crisis.
“We are so grateful for all the support we have had in previous years. The money that we have raised so far hasalready been put to good use within the local community. The Footgolf Charity Days are so much fun. No-one takes themselves too seriously. You don’t need to have any football or golfing skills to take part. Just come along and have a great time. We would also appeal to people to donate prizes for our raffle to help us smash through our previous fundraising ceiling.”
Meanwhile Kai Gill, Marketing and Communications Officer for the Hull & East Yorkshire PFC, said:
“We are delighted to be announcing another footgolf event for the third year running. The past two have been greatly supported and everyone has spoken about how much they’ve enjoyed them. It made it an easy decision for both charities to continue for next year’s fundraising event and make it the best and biggest one yet. The funds raised are critical to both charities and help achieve their charitable aims and objectives.”
The Footgolf Charity Day will take place on Friday 26th April 2024 at the National Avenue Footgolf Centre, Hull. Tee-off times are between 11am and 5pm. A buffet is included and refreshments will be available at the bar.
