On Course Foundation, the charity that helps transform the lives of wounded, injured and sick service personnel through golf, celebrated its fifth anniversary recently against the beautiful backdrop of the Royal Household Golf Club and Windsor Castle. Gathered together to mark the occasion were some of the charities most dedicated supporters along with some of the 450 men and women who have been helped through the Foundation.
Guests and members enjoyed a nine hole Texas Scramble on this most exclusive of courses, use of which was kindly provided by On Course Foundation’s patron HRH The Duke of York. Also in attendance were members of the RAF Aerobatic team, the Red Arrows, one of the latest high profile organisations to throw the weight of its support behind the charity.
Founder and president, John Simpson commented on the significance of the day. “I am genuinely honoured to have helped so many of our beneficiaries recovery with the power of golf. From those with physical injuries to those suffering mental health illnesses, to those injured in the last year to those injured thirty years ago; I am so humbled by their strength, courage and determination. To know that alongside such a great team we have been able to provide a real path to recovery, and more than that, help these inspiring individuals find meaningful roles in the industry, means more than I can ever attempt to articulate. I know we have so many more to help, but we can get there with such incredible support from our beneficiaries and supporters.”
