Hagley Golf Club's fundraising story

Hagley Golf Club's fundraising story

Hagley Golf Club chose Place2Be as their charity of the year and raised £7,335.62 in an incredible year of fundraising.

David Hampton’s daughter is an Educational Mental Health Practitioner with Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). When she heard that he needed to choose a charity to support during his term as Hagley Golf Club’s Seniors Captain, she suggest Place2Be straightaway.

With the cost-of-living crisis, the climate emergency and the war in Ukraine, Hagley Golf Club members felt that children and young people need support more than ever before.

The incredible amount raised by the members of Hagley Golf Club could help fund a round of one-to-one counselling sessions for twelve children.

Seniors Captain David Hampton shares the club’s story and advice for anyone considering supporting Place2Be.

David’s advice to anyone struggling with their mental health

  • If you have any concerns or worries, however small you may think they are, do not keep them bottled up or secret.
  • Speak to someone you trust as soon as possible.
  • Remember, if no one knows, no one can help you.
