Below we highlight just some of the charities we’re supporting - we encourage you to take the time to read their journeys and contribute towards these inspiring and emotive causes.
You raise me up charity
The ‘You raise me up charity’ was founded by the late Jane Brooks and her husband Fraser in June 2011. The charity’s sole purpose is to raise funds to support families that have suffered the loss of a teenage child.
On 3rd May 2011 Fraser and Jane’s beautiful daughter Megan Brooks collapsed and died suddenly. As parents of Megan they found themselves in desperate need of comfort from those that had experienced the same loss and to see how they had coped and got through such a terrible time.
The aim of the charity is to be able to provide compassion, support and simply to be able to say “we totally understand” rather than “we cannot imagine what you are going through”.
The financial strains that a funeral can put on those left behind can be of real concern as no parent wants to feel like they are ‘scrimping’ on their child’s send off. It is a real yet, sad fact that no parent should have to even consider saving and planning for the funeral of their child. Yet the cost of ensuring that you have the opportunity to give your child a beautiful and deserving service is something that no financial help, for a teenager of a certain age, is available for. The charity therefore aims to provide financial aid to help provide the funeral that child deserves.

The National Golf Club Challenge - Supporting the On-Course Foundation
• To unite Golfers all over the UK to honor our fallen and help members of the Armed Forces injured in the line of duty.

With our vast number of golf club partnerships and love for golf, this is a charity we had to get on board with and will continue to support over the coming months.
Bee Happy 2gether has been founded by Marie Robson whose own daughter was seriously injured in the Manchester Terror attack in May 2017. Marie wanted to use her experience both professionally and personally to create a support network for young people affected by trauma and/or post-traumatic stress disorder.
After reading Marie’s story on social media and her determination to provide post traumatic support for young people and families, we had to get involved. This is a situation that touched everyone throughout the Whole In 1 Golf office and we’ll be working and networking with Marie to help build awareness and raise donations towards BeeHappy 2gether.
