Last month, 80 golfers took to the fairway in Meadow Prospect’s first annual charity golf day. The 18 teams raised over £8,500 during the tournament, held at Celtic Manor Resort. Meadow Prospect is the charitable arm of RCT Homes, Wales’s largest social landlord.
Malcolm Wilson, deputy chief executive, RCT Homes, said, “This is our first charity golf day for the group and it’s been a great success. This is all down to the generosity of our partners who have been extremely supportive – so thank you very much to them. Also our congratulations to Hugh James Solicitors who were the winning team; they had a fantastic round.”
John Cardona from Capita, the main sponsor for the event, said, “Capita is delighted to support this great cause and we are very proud of our relationship with RCT Homes, which goes back a very long way. The regeneration work that Meadow Prospect carries out in the community is an inspiration to us all.”
Meadow Prospect has already helped more than 1,700 young people who struggle to make the move from the job market into the workplace. Meadow Prospect works with partner organisations to deliver projects, which support three core objectives: community capacity-building projects such as youth work and supported employment programmes, community-based renewable energy projects, and social enterprise development.
