Back in Christmas 2021, Nick Darby met with our CEO Ed Richardson to discuss how Get Golfing could help those less fortunate get into golf. After some research Nick came across a UK based charity called The Mumba’s Children’s project.
MCP’s mission is to help facilitate and support the needs of children in, but not limited to Africa by providing at least one meal per day, clean water, education and healthcare. Nick, spoke to the charity and asked how we as a not for profit golf operator can help? It was decided that we would run a campaign across our 7 sites aimed at staff, members, and their visitors asking for old clubs, clothes and bags. Over a 4 week period Nick collected over 1000 golf clubs, golf bags, 20 bags of clothing and a cash donation totalling £324.
Fast forward to June 26th 2022 and we were delighted to receive word from Aaron Banda, projects co-ordinator at MCP that the golf equipment had been delivered to the children and families of Mpongwe District in Zambia. We must take this opportunity to thank the Winning Women international team and MCP’s director Hildah Mulenga for working tirelessly to ensure that the equipment was successfully delivered.
