Charity Golf Day
WESC Foundation’s charity golf day in Exeter, Devon
We’re holding our annual charity golf day on Thursday 4th November 2021 at Exeter Golf and Country Club.
Teams of 4 can enter for just £200 per team, which includes refreshments on arrival and during your round, 18 holes of golf on the edge of Exeter, and a 2 course meal after you’ve finished. We’re grateful to our friends at ITEC who are returning as sponsors of the event for another year.
You’ll get to hear about the inspirational work that WESC Foundation does right here in the city for young people with vision impairment and complex needs. There are also top raffle prizes up for grabs, and a chance to see golf differently with our vision-impaired putting competition.
Join us for a shotgun start, refreshments during the round, and then end the charity golf day with a meal together to find out how your golfing will help change the lives of the children and young adults we support here in Exeter.
What you’re raising money for
Children and young adults with complex needs and visual impairment often face barriers to learning, living and taking an active, independent place in society.
WESC Foundation provides the specialist expertise, equipment and adapted facilities to inspire, challenge and empower these young people from across the UK to live their best lives.
Where the money goes
We rely on our golfers and other supporters to give life-changing opportunities to the children and young adults at WESC Foundation.
Last year your generosity made amazing things happen like:
From wheelchair to water
College student B is has a vision impairment, Cerebral Palsy and uses a wheelchair. They live at WESC Foundation during term time and enjoy using the water therapy centre.
At the start of the year they needed help in water from a support worker. With just the right amount of support from our staff he is now able to swim and float independently for almost a length. He can also help to lower himself into the pool and get back out again.
Your support helps us staff and heat our water therapy centre and hydrotherapy pool for young men like B, and gives them the freedom of movement that is only possible in the water.
Braille for independence
F came to the WESC Foundation School from a mainstream setting here in Devon. She was already a competent Braillist, but had only previously used a Perkins (mechanical) Brailler.
During this year we were able to help F to learn to use newer technologies that combine Braille keyboards (and displays!) with a tablet computer. She can now open and save documents, input text, and access audio books for leisure – all independently!
