West Surrey Golf Club

Our Charity for 2020

The club has been supporting local charities for over 40 years.
This year Captains Bill Morris and Mari Magnussen have chosen to support the disabled children's charity Challengers and are pictured here visiting the charity's centre in Stoke Park, Guildford.

Established 40 years ago in Guildford, Challengers provides exciting and inclusive play and leisure activities for disabled children and young people from ages 4 - 25 in Surrey and the South East. 

In addition to Guildford it has a Play and Youth centre in Farnham and boasts a non-exclusion policy, so anyone is welcome.  The charity challenges the barriers to play for approx 1400 disabled children and young people through a range of schemes.

2018/2019

Last year's Captains Andy Hindley and Pat White led the club in raising £000's in support of the Samson Centre for MS which  provides free, practical and emotional support for people living with multiple sclerosis  in Surrey and surrounding areas.

Multiple sclerosis takes so much away. A debilitating and progressive disease of the central nervous system which baffles neurologists, involves pharmaceutical companies investing millions of pounds in clinical trials and still leaves sufferers without a cure.

At their Centre in Riverside, Guildford, the charity (which is totally self-funded) provides physiotherapy and exercise sessions, gym classes and oxygen therapy treatments plus important social support for approx. 170 people who are affected by MS.
