Ramsdale Park charity fundraising surpasses £10,000 in just three months

Events have included fire walking on red hot coals and a charity sleepout


Ramsdale Park Golf Centre in Calverton has raised more than £10,000 for good causes so far in 2023 through a range of fundraising activities carried out collaboratively between staff, club members, and members of the public.

In February, a charity fire walk saw participants make their way across red-hot coals, raising more than £6,000 for local charity Maggie’s Cancer Care.

A charity sleep out was held the previous month, led by General Manager Theresa Plimmer, which raised over £4,000.

Members of the Ramsdale Park team slept outside to raise money for Emmanuel House – a homeless charity in Nottingham – to help build a 20-bed homeless shelter, and increase awareness of the challenges faced by those who do not have a safe and warm place to sleep.

Theresa Plimmer, General Manager of Ramsdale Park Golf Centre, said: “We are thrilled to have raised over £10,000 for charity already this year.

“Our staff and members are passionate about giving back to the community, and it is heartening to see so many people come together to support these important causes.

“Last year we set the bar incredibly high when it came to raising funds for charity, but we’re looking forward to taking that even higher in 2023!”

Last year the golf centre smashed its record for the amount of money raised for the captain’s charity in a single year, with close to £20,000 presented to Maggie’s Cancer Care.

“We’ll continue to do everything we can throughout the year to raise important funds for our captain’s charities, Maggie’s and Emmanuel House, and we’ll also take any opportunity that we get to support other local charities within our community,” Theresa added.
