Playing Golf for ChallengeAid

August 14th, 2018

Huge congratulations to these four lads below who have so far raised £870 from a target of £1,000. Perhaps you could help nudge the figure to £1,000.

Four boys from R.G.S. Guildford undertook a special holiday challenge last week on behalf of ChallengeAid.
The four took part in a dawn to dusk challenge at Burhill Golf Course to play over three rounds of golf in a day which amounts to a remarkable 72 holes !
Burhill kindly made their facilities available for the Challenge and the four lads set about their day as the sun rose over the horizon in what turned out to be “Furness Friday ! ”
Over the 15 hours Matthew Slominski, Jack Doyle, Oliver Cronk and Will Wieland walked and jogged over 20 miles.
Matthew Slominski said afterwards as he looked up from a refreshing glass of lemonade “At 06.00hrs we hit our first shot and finished just shy of 21.00hrs. We were originally thinking that 3 rounds each would be our aim but even managed an extra half a round each to bring it to 288 holes in total. He continued “We had to jog the last 9 holes to beat the fading light.” 
He then added “ChallengeAid which creates Schools of Hope in the informal slum settlements of East Africa gives student like us the opportunity to get more from their education – is a really wonderful charity that we can identify with. We are getting closer to achieving our fundraising target and if there is anybody out there who feels they would like to donate to ChallengeAid we would really appreciate any donations

All four boys added “We are already looking forward to our next challenge !”
