Millennium Raising Futures Kenya Golf Day
Friday 13th September 2019
Westerham Golf Club, Kent
It was a sun-filled September day in Westerham when the Millennium “Raising Futures Kenya” golf day took place. The event was well supported by the payers and special guest, former World Light heavyweight Boxing Champion John Conteh, accompanied by his son James, adding sporting pedigree, physical presence and golfing prowess.
There were prizes aplenty with the European team once more emerging victorious in the Stableford overall team event. Other winners included William Hill - led by Steve Gant - who won the 4 ball Stableford prize.
The individual scratch score prize was won by Joe Jezzard of Osella Technology with a score of 75, closely followed by Colin Stansbury of Avalara with 76.
The longest drive was won by Jono Rawlings of Arthur J Gallagher, with Joe Jezzard also winning the nearest the flag prize.
Following the golf and post round dinner, a short presentation was provided by Andy King, Board of Trustees Chair at Raising Futures Kenya, who shared news from around how the funds raised at the 2018 golf event were put to good use. Tales of children helped and their subsequent journeys brought to life the tangible outcome arising from the funds previously raised. Overall the golf day raised £2,000 on the day, a sum which will be put to good use by the Raising Futures Kenya team.
Millennium Consulting CEO Phil Keet expressed his thanks to the corporate sponsors, including Avalara, Bang and Olufsen and Arbonne International as well as John Conteh and the players who took part. Phil will be visiting Kenya in 2020 to gain first-hand insight into the work being carried out on the ground by Raising Futures Kenya and will provide an update for the players taking part at the 2020 event.
