Members of Broome Manor Golf Club rallied round to organise donations as well as a raffle and silent auction, raising more than £3,000 during their Senior Captain’s Day.
Captain Clive Belcher decided to raise money after speaking to one of Swindon Carer’s volunteers Gary Vilter.
“Last year, I was playing an away game, and I got talking to Gary. He made me aware of Swindon Carers Centre and the Young Carers Team,” he said.
“To be honest it wasn’t something I was aware of until then, but once I’d spoken to him I knew I wanted to add my support.
“People aren’t always aware of what young carers do, so it’s making them more aware and hopefully helping young carers in Swindon a bit with some money for activities and breaks. I’ve had a lot of people coming back and saying what a great day it was.”
Several local businesses, including the Golf Pros at BMGC, donated prizes.
