The Captain One Golf Society has donated cash and items worth ¢3,000 in the face of the coronavirus impact, to the Angel of Hope Orphanage located at Tarkwa in the Western Region.
The gesture was part of the society’s charity initiative to support the needy in communities across the country as it continues to make golf attractive to young people in less privileged communities.
It is also part of the society’s objective to demystify the notion the game of golf is meant for only the rich and elite in the society.
Captain of the Golf Society, Dr Frank Boateng, who presented the items on behalf of the society, said the donation would go a long way to make life comfortable for the orphans and their caretakers.
The donation came from the contributions of members of the Golf society to support the home in the wake of the impact of the corona virus and its attendant effect.
“Aside the cash, the items also include a television set, a Multi TV Decorder and a Power Surge, to help them in times of power cuts and offer entertainment,” and he assured, “This is part of our support to the orphanage as we have done some donations in the past and would continue to assist to make life better for the children”.
Dr Boateng was accompanied by Competition Secretary Solomon Harvey and Executive Member Kojo Sassah for the presentation.
Chief Executive Officer of the orphanage, Madam Esi Antobam expressed gratitude to the society for the timely intervention.
“The kids have always wanted a television to watch and also learn and this gesture would go a long way to impact positively on their lives,” she stated.
She promised to do well to maintain the items brought and utilize the cash appropriately to achieve the purpose for which it was brought.
Captain One Golf Society with its initiative “Golf for All” has committed to bringing golf to the doorsteps of everyone especially children in less privilege communities.
The initiative is meant to go a long way to demystify the notion that the game of golf is a preserve for rich and well-to-do in society.
It is also aimed at bringing young girls on board and introducing them to the sport beginning with the Angel of Hope Orphanage.
