A golf day held in aid of Rockinghorse has raised thousands of pounds.

23-year-old Professional golfer Toby Graves organised the golf day in support of our charity. Funds were also raised to aid him on tour this year.

The Toby Graves Golf Day was held at East Brighton Golf Club on Friday 5 July and attended by 80 players. Thanks to fundraising throughout the day, the event raised an incredible £5,500!

Raising funds for Rockinghorse

Organiser, Toby Graves, expressed his delight following the success of the charity golf day. He said, “Firstly I would like to thank everyone for attending the day in support of myself and Rockinghorse children’s charity.

“With your support, I am able to raise funds for the European Tour Qualifying School at the end of the year. It means that together we were also able to raise much-needed funds for Rockinghorse and all they do in the community and at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital.

“Thank you to all the sponsors of the day and to East Brighton Golf Club for letting us have the course for the whole day. Well done to everyone who took part and congratulations to winners Sussex Surveyors and David Aspey!”

Terrina Barnes is the corporate fundraising manager at Rockinghorse and thanked Toby for his support. She says, “We are so grateful to Toby for choosing to support our charity as part of his golf day at East Brighton Golf Club. It was a hugely successful event and we are delighted with the funds raised for Rockinghorse.”
