Think ‘golf club’ and you’ll almost certainly assume that any charity event held there will have a golf element. Yet whilst it’s true that many of our fundraisers do involve golf in some way, just as many don’t.
So whatever the theme or charity, if you are an event organiser, a Warley Park member or ‘Joe Public’ who is planning on holding a fundraising event in Essex, Warley Park Golf Club can help.
Warley Park has two function rooms available to hire – Lakesview and the Terrace Room. Lakesview is our larger suite, holding up to 140 guests; the Terrace can sit up to 80. Over the years we have helped organise numerous charity events, ranging from quiz nights to formal black tie balls; golf days (of course!) to discos.
When booking one of our function suites for your charity fundraiser, Warley Park will always contribute to your cause by offering prizes/auction items. We will also promote your event to our membership to promote attendance.
We can often also grant discounted prices on venue hire and catering, so that your overheads are lower and you are able to raise more for your chosen charity.
Practicing what we preach
Here at Warley Park Golf Club, we understand how important it is to give back to our local community, as well as further afield. The majority of us are in a fortunate position – we have jobs, homes, family and friends, our health. Yet it is certain that at some point in our lives, we will be touched by illness and disease. We may fall on hard times. You never know when you may need someone else’s generosity.
That’s why in 2016, Warley Park members and staff raised a mammoth £20,000 for various charities. We ran the London Marathon in aid of MIND and Leukaemia Care. We spent nearly 14 hours thwacking golf balls and walking 20 miles for Macmillan Cancer Fund.
We biked 100 miles to help Saint Francis Hospice continue to provide palliative care to people with life limiting conditions. We held coffee mornings, helped organise a charity golf day and held our annual Poppy Day Golf Day.
So if you are looking to partner with an Essex venue that knows how essential charity fundraising is, just get in touch with Warley Park Golf Club. We will be more than happy to help.
