The TGI Golf Partnership, golf’s leading retail services group, has announced a new charitable Foundation that will support the many good causes its Partners and golf in general supports. Over the last decade the group’s PGA Professional Partners, staff and suppliers have raised tens of thousands of pounds for charities, including a staggering £36,000 for Make-A-Wish since 2012.
To enhance this charitable work the group, which is wholly owned by PGA Professionals, has formed the TGI Golf Foundation, that will continue to help those in need.
Eddie Reid, (pictured top) TGI Golf Partnership Managing Director, said: “The new Foundation with continue to support Make-A-Wish, which has been our chosen charity for six years, but it will also allow us to support other deserving causes, reflecting the caring nature of our Partners.
“Sadly, over the last year we have lost Partners and friends to very aggressive and terminally short illnesses. The Foundation will enable us to support the families of any of our Partners who suffer the same fate, in order to help with immediate expenses.
“From our experience, families can be left in a difficult position in respect of golf club relationships, business operations and financial commitment.”
From running marathons to climbing mountains, cycle rides and growing moustaches, TGI Golf’s Partners and staff have independently raised thousands for their own charities and through the new TGI Golf Foundation, the group can now throw its own weight behind these causes.
“The TGI Golf Foundation is something we have planned for some time. It now gives us the opportunity to back the many good causes that ask for support as well as continuing the support we have given our chosen charitable partners,” added Reid.
The TGI Golf Foundation was officially launched on 1st September 2018. For further information visit www.tgigolf.com/TGIGolfFoundation
