Proteus pitches in at charity golf day

On Friday 19th June, a team of golfers from Proteus Waterproofing headed to The Royal Eastbourne Golf Club for the Freddie Farmer Foundation’s annual golf day – helping to raise more than £7,000 to support children with disabilities.

Organised by Clarke Roofing, the event supports the Freddie Farmer Foundation in its campaign to bring a specialised physiotherapy centre to Bromley. With the centre now in operation after a three year fundraising campaign, it still relies on donations to cover annual costs so it can continue to help children with cerebral palsy and serious mobility problems.

More than 80 golfers took to the sun-covered fairways of Eastbourne for an enjoyable, and competitive, game of golf followed by an evening celebration and additional fundraising. The two teams of four that proudly represented Proteus Waterproofing on the day included Director Justin Pitman, Alan Joy, and Ian Ward, alongside five golf-playing guests.

“It was a huge honour to sponsor a hole and take part in the annual golf day for the Freddie Farmer Foundation,” said Justin Pitman, Director at Proteus Waterproofing. “We’ve watched this fantastic charity grow for a number of years and it’s been an absolute privilege to be able to make a difference to such a worthwhile cause.”

The Freddie Farmer Foundation was founded in February 2011 to raise the funds needed to set up a specialised physiotherapy centre in south-east London. The physiotherapy centre opened in April 2015 and is the only independent centre of its kind in South East England – supporting disabled children with cerebral palsy, developmental delay/co-ordination disorders and other non-progressive neurological disorders and syndromes.
