The London Golf Show, which takes place at Glow, Bluewater from November 13-15, has announced the On Course Foundation as its official charity partner.
The partnership will see the On Course Foundation raise money from a series of features at the show.
The charity offers golf skills and employment events for veterans with physical and mental injuries, where attendees can explore how golf can help them on the road to recovery, and how the industry can provide employment.
Members receive comprehensive golf tuition from the foundation’s professionals, career advice and guidance from industry figures in many fields, including golf course management, greenkeeping and marketing.
Its main aim is to offer work placements, eventually helping members pursue careers in the golf industry.
“With many of our beneficiaries lacking self-belief, it’s our aim to help them realise their potential within the golf industry, and set them on a fulfilling career path,” said Steve Holt, Managing Director of the On Course Foundation.
“The London Golf Show will be a great partner for us – a perfect fit to help us spread awareness of our cause. We’re absolutely delighted to be working with them, and look forward to a fruitful relationship.”
Patrons of the charity include Prince Andrew and seven-time Major Champion Arnold Palmer.
Simon Jones, Sales Director of the Golf Show Group, added:
“The official charity is a large part of the show and we have helped raise a lot of money for our partners. We are extremely excited to be working with such an active and well-supported organisation at Bluewater this year.
“The team will all be behind their participation in the event and we look forward to raising their profile at the show and raising as much money as possible for this valuable charity.”
