AMATEUR golfers teed off to raise money for a charity which looks after young people in care.

Power of Parenting hosted their charity golf day at Mill Ride Golf Club in Ascot on Friday, July 5 raising money for the foster charity.

A massive £2050 was raised from the golf day and 64 people attended to support the organisation.

Paul Adams, foster carer at Power of Parenting, said: "The day was a great success with almost twice as many people playing golf as last year. "As a foster carer in Bracknell for the last seven years, I am fully aware of the challenges to find safe homes for the 140 plus local children in care currently. This is on going with new cases of children needing to be taken into care daily."

Golfers were invited to beat the pro, take part in individual and team prizes and enjoy a dinner with a charity auction, finishing off the day.

The charity aims to provide financial support to children who are adopted or in further education.

The financial support also takes into account students who have had a difficult start in life.

The Charity wants to help provide financial and moral support to Looked after children/children who have been adopted, to fulfil their academic/sporting achievements in further education, including the fulfilment of any academic/sporting ambition, giving them greater opportunity to achieve their own personal goals in later life.
