Charity golf day raises over £4,000 for The Soma Leo Foundation

The annual Soma Leo Foundation Charity Golf Day took place at Ufford Park, Woodbridge on Wednesday 3 July. 58 players took to the course, on what was a beautiful sunny day. The event, now in its sixth year, was co-sponsored by Pound Gates, Concertus, Becketts and Sackers and this year raised over £4,000 for the charity.

Established in 2015, the charity provides education and support to disadvantaged communities in east Africa. This is achieved through the charity's own school The Soma Leo Academy, located in Nyiera, western Kenya and by supporting other schools in nearby Osieko. It costs £168 per year to educate and provide nourishment for each of the 130 pupils at the school.

The event was organised by Pound Gates, whose directors, managers and staff are involved with the charity either as Trustees or providing all of the administrative resources the charity requires.
