On Friday 12th July, Dulwich & Sydenham Golf Club hosted Reedham Children's Trust's bi-annual Charity Golf Tournament  

We are fortunate to be supported by Tali Atvars, Reedham Alumni and member at the Club, who every two years manages and hosts this wonderful fundraiser for Reedham.

This year the event was an extra-special occasion, as Reedham continues to celebrate 175 years of transforming the lives of vulnerable children.

Tali's story of the day .... and how he helped raise £1,205!

Players arrived at 1pm, ready to do battle. Registration just a formality, pints and lunch were ordered, before players put on their spikes. The weather was glorious, as our first team, the club captain's team teed off at 1.30pm.

Early evening, scorecards were handed in and recorded, and the winners were presented with prizes – before an absolutely fabulous dinner and the ever-so-popular game of reverse bingo!

I was a pupil at Reedham School in Purley, from 1968 to 1974, and am very grateful and always will be to them for keeping me on the straight and narrow. I will always remember my time there, and whenever possible like to help raise funds for the vulnerable children the charity supports today. As long as I am able, I will.

"It was a great pleasure to take part in the 175 golf day , and an honour to present the prizes to the winners. A great day was had by all and I would like to thank the members and guests for supporting this worthwhile cause."  

Anton Williams, Club Captain

"Reedham Children’s Trust is greatly indebted to Tali once again for his huge efforts in managing another golf day for the benefit of Reedham.  I much enjoyed taking part and meeting such a friendly group of members who clearly hold Tali in the highest esteem. The weather was perfect and the course was in its customary excellent condition. The bonus is always to relax afterwards on the large balcony enjoying the extensive view of London. The traditional ‘reverse bingo’ competition after dinner brought the occasion to an end with George Kanetti reaching the closing stages."

Richard Link, Vice President, Reedham Children's Trust

Many thanks to all the players for their support, and I hope to see the same enthusiasm for the Golf Day in 2021!
