Mayor of Maldon plays golf at first charity event
THE Mayor of the Town of Maldon raised funds for two selected charities at the inaugural fundraising event.
Maldon Town Mayor David Ogg raised funds for the two charities he selected for support during his year in office at a charity golf day.
A total of 24 people attended the event at Maldon Golf Club in Langford, which raised £ 545 to be shared between The Sea-Change Sailing Trust and Churches Together in Maldon.
The event was hosted by David Carr, owner of Carr Associates Insurance Brokers, a company based in Maldon. The company also presented trophies for the event.
Cllr Ogg said the event was a “big learning curve” as the city’s mayor and looks forward to more fundraising events in the future, including a casino night.
The Sea-Change Sailing Trust is a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) training and seaworthiness center and Duke of Edinburgh’s Award approved activity center that provides residential opportunities for disabled, disadvantaged and socially excluded young people.
Churches Together in Maldon has become a lifeline in the district during the pandemic with their voluntary coronavirus community response helping those who have been told to stay home with activities such as distributing food parcels and hot meals, prescription collections, safe checks and well, a helpline and Suite.
