WE HIT THE
Summer Swing 2019
After 12 years of our annual Summer Swing fundraising event, our 2019 fundraising total has taken us past the £1 million raised mark!
This year’s event, held on Thursday 11th July at The Mere Golf & Spa Resort, once again followed the format of a charity golf day followed by a gala evening of entertainment, all designed to raise money for the St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation set up by St. James’s Place Wealth Management.
The total raised for the St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation over the whole Summer Swing event was £86,250. After matching by St. James’s Place Wealth Management, that became £172,500 – enough to take the total raised by all the Summer Swing events over the years to exactly £1 million!
Each year, we nominate a Pledge Charity – a local, particularly worthy cause which attendees are able to support through pledging to donate a specific amount which will go directly to the chosen charity. The Pledge Charity this year was The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT) based in Millington, Cheshire.
CAFT is a special place where terminally ill, disabled and socially disadvantaged children can have a break away from their circumstances, and the amount raised through pledges at Summer Swing following matching from St. James’s Place Wealth Management was £39,100 – which will enable 72 children to have a 5-day break there.
Andrew Chatterton, Managing Director: “We’re absolutely delighted to have reached such a fantastic milestone, which is all thanks to our sponsors over the years as well as the FFM team and of course the many guests we’ve welcomed. But this is just the first million, of course – we’ll be back next year with an even bigger and better Summer Swing event, to set about raising our second!”
