Charity Golf Day in London Raises £15,000 for Underprivileged Schoolchildren

BAPS Charities hosted a charity golf day at the picturesque Moor Park Golf Club in Hertfordshire on 26 September 2018. The event was planned by ‘Helping Hand’, a group of golfing enthusiasts, and supported by volunteers from BAPS Charities.

Moor Park Golf Club is a stunning championship golf course replete with a 17th century Grade I-listed mansion set over 300 acres of landscaped Hertfordshire parkland.

More than 72 players participated to raise money for good causes. Participants enjoyed the warm weather and healthy competition before joining as a group for the awards ceremony.

The event raised more than £15,000 for BAPS Charities projects that serve tribal and underserved areas of south eastern Gujarat through the provision of educational services and hostels.

Praful Depala, a BAPS Charities volunteer, said, “We are grateful for the support from participants and sponsors to raise valuable funds for underprivileged children in India. Over the years, this fundraising initiative has helped many underprivileged children exceed their expectations by progressing academically and subsequently in their professional careers.”
