This year the Hedgehogs golf day has been moved to a Friday, by request and will also be at a new venue. Hartly Wintney Gold Club. Which was built in 1891 as a 9 hole parkland course in a traditional layout offering testing golf for all participants.
In 2000 an additional 9 holes were added and it now offers a well laid out variation of both traditional and new designs. The new holes have now established themselves alongside the original course to offer a good 18 hole course in a relaxed environment.
What does this mean? Well, it means we’re in the business of raising funds to help local people in need. Helping:- Individuals - Families - Single Parents - The Disabled and other Local Organisations, Schools and Charities.
We are a Registered Charity established over 50 years ago with a mission to benefit the community of Farnham and the surrounding areas. Our membership is over 50 strong and included in our fund raising is the joint organisation of the Farnham Carnival with the Farnham Lions.
Over the past 10 years we have raised over £450,000 pounds which has been distributed locally. The Hedgehogs running costs are paid for by members and friends so that all the funds raised are used solely for good causes. We work closely with other Farnham organisations involved in similar work.
Social events are held regularly where members, friends and supporters, can come together to discuss the future direction of the charity. We discuss how the organisation can be more effective in both fund raising and improving ways we can support those in need in the local community of Farnham!
If your looking to put something back into the local community and having fun doing so then: Please consider joining us.
