Adrian Richards, CEO at BF Adventure, visited the Budock Vean Hotel on 14th December to receive a cheque for just over £4,000. Having made BF Adventure their charity of the year The Budock Vean Golf Club were pleased to donate money raised during their charity open day and Captain’s Charity Auction in August. The much needed funds will go towards directly supporting disadvantaged and disabled young people and adults in Cornwall to achieve a better future.
Originally designed by five times Open Winner, James Braid, The Budock Vean Golf Club is a challenging 9 hole/18 tee golf course. It is set in mature parkland with the first tee a few paces from the hotel’s golf bag room. The seventh on this interesting course was until recently the longest Par 5 in the county and the ninth green, ‘The Flower Bowl’ is one of the finest short holes in Cornwall. Climatic conditions are so mild that the course plays exceptionally well all year round.
Brian Hoskins Club Secretary says: ‘The Budock Vean Golf Club, a beautiful parkland course close to the Helford River, will always welcome new members. If you are interested please contact the Golf Manager, Tony Ramsden, at the Golf Shop on 01326 2521023 or the Club Secretary, Brian Hoskins, at email@example.com’.
Adrian Richards CEO BF Adventure says: ‘It was great to be chosen as Charity of the Year for the prestigious Budock Vean Golf Club, every donation makes a huge difference to disabled and disadvantaged children and adults in Cornwall. BF Adventure supports young people to get back into education and employment, helps them to overcome barriers and achieve in the outdoors whilst making memories. With government funding cuts we can only achieve this with support, especially from local businesses. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved!’
