Wain Homes Golf Day raises £8,000 for Grief Encounter

The annual Wain Homes Severn Valley Golf Day raised £8,000 for Grief Encounter, a charity that supports bereaved children and young people.

Grief Encounter, which has a Therapy Centre in Knowle, Bristol, has been providing free, professional and specialist bereavement support services for more than 15 years.

Its mission is to give every child and young person access to the best possible support following the death of someone close and the charity works closely with individuals, families, schools and professionals to offer a way through the anxiety, fear and isolation so often caused by grief.

Carl Haley, managing director of Wain Homes Severn Valley said: “We have supported Grief Encounter for the past three years and it is a charity we hold close to our hearts.

“I would like to thank everyone who played a part in raising such a fantastic amount at our golf day and your efforts will make a real difference to the lives of many young people.”

Richard Fogelman, CEO of Grief Encounter, said: “We are so thrilled that Wain Homes chose to support Grief Encounter South West at their recent Golf Day. Their donation will help fund the extremely important bereavement services we are offering at this time.

“Demand is ever-increasing as so many families experience the unimaginable, so this is a much welcome boost at such an uncertain time for charities.”

The Wain Homes Severn Valley Golf Day was held at The Kendleshire Golf Club in Coalpit Heath with Galtec Groundworks running out as champions.

We would like to say a big thank you to the following companies for their support:

AO, E&H Dryling (South West), E&H Dryling (Melksham), MP Plastering, Galtec, Image Styles, Burnham Plastering, Clarkson Evens, Stone Supplies, King Scaffolding, Bell Contracting, Pegasus, P.Sellick Brickwork, Omega, PA Fencing, Scitus, Jeff Way Group, CPS, Avtar, Avonside Group and Group Approved Workforce.
