Golf Dates For Rainbow Living

Apr 5, 2019 | Jenni Ashford

Fundraising is well underway for the Golf Captains’ charity of the year, Rainbow Living with the ladies’ golf coffee morning taking place this week.

Ali and Pete, the 2019 Golf Captains are working with fellow golfers to raise funds and awareness for the Exeter based charity supporting adults with disabilities.

Rainbow Living is currently half way towards their fundraising target to open a fourth Rainbow House. The charity is ran by volunteer and provides accommodation to enable tenants to live with their peers as independently as possible in supported living. They have three Rainbow Houses in Devon, two in Exeter and one in Torquay, and are now working towards Rainbow House Four.

Pete visited one of the Exeter Rainbow Houses with Steve Sheldon and Jacqui Harris from the men’s and ladies’ golf committee and Director of Golf, Darren Everett. They met volunteers and tenants living in the house and found out more about how the charity improves the lives of those living in the supported housing.

Over the next 12 months Exeter Golf and Country Club is aiming to raise £10,000 for the charity.

There are many ways members of Exeter Golf and Country Club can help, including supporting the golf events coming up but also getting involved with Rainbow Living from a corporate partnership point of view, donating items of furniture, clothing etc which the charity can sell at table top sales (they have a van for collecitons!), signing up to their social media pages and also signing up to their AmazonSmile charity page.
