Kambua contributes to Children’s Golf 2018
Once again, Kambua were invited by Queen Silvia’s Children and Youth Hospital, to the annual Children’s Golf. The event was held at Kungsbacka Golf Club in Gothenburg, and we were delighted to participate. Kambua Sales Manager, Mikael Vestin said, “It was amazing to have the opportunity to contribute over 10,000 kronor to the event itself, as well as the auction.”
Children’s Golf is currently Sweden’s largest charity golf event, organised by the fundraising foundation for Queen Silvia’s Children and Youth Hospital. To date, the event has raised 15 million kronor over the years, with funds going towards improved environments, experiences and technologies for those struggling with illness, as well as sibling support and hospital entertainment, anything to ease the burden of lengthy hospital stays on individual children and their families.
Thanks to the foundation, a state-of-the-art hospital is presently under construction in Gothenburg. The funds raised during Bargolf 2018 will support both existing hospitals, as well as the new hospital. The goal for this project stands at 2.5million kronor.
The charity golf day works by pairing one celebrity contestant with a professional golfer. Some of the participants for 2018 included; football players Henrik Larsson and Fredrik Ljungberg, table tennis legend Jorgen Persson, hockey players Douglas Murray and Penny Parnevik, sports journalist Johan Ejeborg, among many other high-profile personalities. Professional golfers for the day included both former and current players, including Kambua-sponsored Niklas Lemke.
Mikael Vestin concluded, “It was an honour for Kambua to play a small part in helping the foundation reach their fundraising goals. It was an enjoyable day, both on the golf course and ending at the auction. We would like to thank all who were involved in organising Children’s Golf 2018, and for their efforts in making the day so successful.”
Kambua Open donates to A Reaching Hand
A drop of rain is insignificant, but together we can make a river!
A REACHING HAND is a charitable trust based in Cape Town in South Africa. The organisation depends on the support and donations of private citizens and businesses. By giving to A REACHING HAND, you give direct help to children, youths, single mothers and families who struggle to survive from one day to the next in some of South Africa’s neediest areas.
A REACHING HAND was formally founded by Karin Hoole in 2010. Karin devotes all her free time to supporting the organisation and her passionate dedication to the cause never fails to touch the hearts of the people she meets.
A REACHING HAND receives no funding at all from the South African government. Its work is based entirely on the organisation’s own initiative and is funded by private citizens, individual companies, associations and foundations.
A REACHING HAND graciously accepted the proceeds raised during the first annual Kambua Open Golf Tournament, held at the famous Bro Hof Slott course, located in Upplands-Bro, Sweden, northwest of the captial, Stockholm, in August 2017.
