Business network raises nearly £4,000 for local charity

Business Cornerstones raises nearly £4,000 at charity golf day event for Now! Charity Group Ltd

Business Cornerstones members and supporters recently took part in a charity golf day organised by members Tim Franklin and Jim Bruckshaw at Willingdon golf club.

The money raised will help Now! Charity Group Ltd continue to work across East Sussex helping to relieve poverty and social exclusion. The charity does this by providing household items at their Furniture Now! stores, free training and activities from their Training Now! centres and a range of free emergency services for those in crisis.
Business Cornerstones re-elected Now! Charity Group Ltd as its charity of choice last year and this was their first ever fundraising event.

A range of pampering activities and a putting competition took place whilst the golfers were out on the course followed by dinner and a raffle.

Tim Franklin said “I am very impressed with the business model that Now! Charity Group uses. In addition to raising much-needed funding, to assist those people that they are dedicated to support, they offer training and employment in their charity to the very same people, creating a virtuous cycle. So as the Business Cornerstones member who volunteered to organise a golf day for a charitable cause, I had no hesitation in doing so, knowing that Now! would be able to continue their sterling work within our local community.”

Petrina Mayson, CEO of the charity said “We are so grateful to Tim and the Business Cornerstones members for all of their support. A lot of our work is hidden as people in crisis do not want to advertise their situation- for instance fleeing domestic abuse; facing financial difficulties after developing a health condition or coming to terms with life after a breakdown- so donations like this help us to remain the emergency support service they can turn to.”
