New rescheduled date 2022 – Play the Links at our Renaissance Charity Golf Day

We have a new date. We are delighted to announce the new date for our Charity Golf Day, at The Renaissance Golf Club, host of the Abrdn Scottish Open, as 19th May 2022.  

The pandemic has impacted individuals and organisations in different ways, not least the charity sector. With many charities having to rollover their events from 2020, we have decided to move ours from our original September 2021 date. This will ensure our charity friends and their supporters hosting similar events, will have the opportunity to enjoy maximum success, as well as ourselves.   

 

We invite you to join us on 19th May 2022, for a wonderful afternoon of golf on the fabulous 18-hole links course at The Renaissance Club, Cowden Hill Drive, North Berwick, EH39 5HS. We welcome 4-ball teams to play at Renaissance. The day begins with a light lunch and team photos, followed by a great afternoon of golf including our fabulous prize-winning holes. With complimentary drinks throughout the day, evening dinner and superb auction we are sure you and your team will have a memorable experience.  

 

To book, please see our Invitation and Booking Form and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. 

 

We are grateful to both The Renaissance Golf Club and Gilson Gray for supporting this event.

Summer Show success!

What a day we had on Sunday at our ‘not our usual’ Summer Show! We were so happy to see all our competitors with their gorgeous ponies and horses. Thanks to everyone for joining us for our first live, in-person fundraising event since the pandemic, and huge congratulations to all our worthy winners!

Sunday 1st August dawned dry and sunny thankfully, following a very damp set up on Saturday, and we had a superb day of competition with equine breeds of all shapes and sizes. Smiles all round, and thanks to everyone for complying with our covid restrictions. Together we raised over £5,100 which is absolutely fantastic, and a vital boost to the funding of our pioneering, life-changing equine therapy.
