London-based SME funder 365 finance has hosted its inaugural invitational ‘Putts for Purpose’ charity golf day, for brokers and introducers, to raise much needed funds for the Little Rascals Foundation – a charity for which former Premier League footballer Dave Edwards is a trustee.

Taking place last week (Thursday 8 June) at The Astbury, in Shropshire, the aim of the charity golf event was to specifically fundraise for a new sensory room at the Little Rascals Foundation. With football related prizes up for grabs as part of the charity auction hosted on the day, a total of over £5,500 was raised.

The Little Rascals Foundation is privately funded, providing help and services to local SEND children and their families in the Shrewsbury area. The charity offers SEND specific play sessions, holiday clubs, and one-to-one care out in the local community.

I want to say a huge thank you to 365 finance. What an amazing day we all had, it was by far the best golf day I have ever attended. The organisation was fantastic, the venue and course were equally impressive and all of this was matched by the food, drink and hospitality. But most of all, thank you for selecting Little Rascals Foundation as the chosen charity, the significant funds raised on the day will make a huge impact in helping us build our sensory room which in turn will be invaluable to our community. Thank you 365!
