Abbey & Lyndon and the Community

Charity Golf Day

Redditch Golf Club opened up the greens for the very first Abbey & Lyndon Charity Golf Day which saw 80 golfers take part in raising money for charity. 

The shotgun start event was a great success with a charity auction and a raffle held on the day to raise even more funds, with luxury prizes donated from local businesses including YESSS Electrical who were the main sponsors for the event.

Including money from the auction and donations from local companies and golfers, a total of £3042 was raised towards Macmillan Cancer Support.

Supporting the Redditch Scouts with Raffle Donation

We recently received a lovely letter for the local Scouts group that we recently supported.

Dear Dave and all at Abbey and Lyndon

I am writing to say a huge thank you for supporting the top prize of £200 to support our raffle to raise funds for the Redditch Scouts attending the World Scout Jamboree 2019

The raffle was drawn on 23rd June at our summer picnic event and I am pleased to report that the total amount raised via raffle ticket sales was an incredible £3197.

This money will give our scouts a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel to America and meet with more than 40,000 Scouts from all over the world.  the money we are raising also goes towards several training camps across Worcestershire to foster and build relationships with other youth members across the Council area and wider Country.  Furthermore, the Scouting program embeds values of diversity, inclusivity, fitness, self-development and social wellbeing for our young people, who all come from varied backgrounds.

Kind Regards
