Seniors Captain Hugh Marchant nominated Honeypot as his Captain’s charity for the year, having learnt about their work supporting young carers from his wife, who had visited Honeypot House a er fundraising for the Charity along with her quilting group. Money has been raised by the Senior golfers and donated throughout the year to tie in with Honeypot’s matched funding campaigns, doubling their donations with a total of £8,006.56 received by the Charity. Some of the money was raised by golfers having to pay involuntary donations for ending up in the Captains Bunker and losing control of their golf trolley! Other money donated was raised through the annual Captain’s Charity Day. is year they sold mulligans and held a ra e and auction, with £800 collected on that day alone. The final cheque of £1,342.50 plus £70 cash was donated to Viv Carter from Honeypot Children’s Charity, when she visited the New Forest Golf Club recently. Viv explained to the golfers that the money they have raised is enough to fund: • A 3-day/2-night residential respite break for 10 young carers at the beautiful 7 acre Honeypot House in the New Forest. e children will bounce on the trampolines, swing on the swings, whizz around on bikes and go karts, get creative in their art studio, play with the Lego, train tracks and games, laugh (a lot!), sleep (a bit!), eat yummy food that they haven’t had to prepare for themselves and generally have a super time simply being children. • Taking 12 children on a Memory Making Day out between their annual respite breaks, to a theme park to ride a rollercoaster for the rst time or tour a football stadium or a day on the beach building sandcastles, having a picnic and being with friends. • A Wellbeing grant for six young carers from deprived backgrounds to buy life essential items to support them at home (like replacing a broken washing machine so they don’t need to hand wash clothes or buying school shoes/coat/backpack etc) Hugh comments: “My wife Carol initially put me onto Honeypot. Her quilting group chose Honeypot as their charity a few years back and she had visited Honeypot House at that time to see the work they do. At the same time, I was seeing reports of the high numbers of young carers there are thought to be in the UK and the fact that they get little or no support from statutory bodies. It just seemed to me such a worthy charity with local roots and clearly our Seniors Section agreed considering the way they have dug deep throughout the year. Viv showed my wife and I around Honeypot House on a day when a group of children were having a respite break so we saw at first hand the joy that those young carers showed at being able to be themselves for a while. I am in awe at the generosity that our Seniors have shown particularly at this time of austerity and rising inflation. They are truly magnificent – as is Honeypot. I am just delighted to have been able to act as a conduit from one to the other.” Viv comments: “Honeypot started here in the New Left to Right: Viv Carter and Hugh Marchant at Honeypot House with a cheque demonstrating the full amount benefitting Honeypot across the entire year Continued on page 5
