Kent company raises more than £7,000 during annual charity golf day

Kent-based accountancy practice Perrys has raised more than £7,000 for the Gravesend charity Family Matters after successfully hosting its ninth annual fundraising golf day.


The event, which had been postponed for 18 months due to the pandemic, saw 24 teams club together to take on the 18-hole course at Dale Hill Hotel and Golf Club in Ticehurst. The day included a three-course meal and a raffle, which boosted funds.


The winning team was announced as Newmans with 98 points – just one point ahead of second and third place – which was made up of Andrew Deadman, Simon Ellis, Roger Nightingale and Tom Foreman.


Family Matters provides free therapy and counselling services to survivors of childhood sexual abuse and rape.


Stewart Pope, CEO at Perrys Chartered Accountants, said:


“It was brilliant to be back competing in our annual golf event. After such a long wait, we were thrilled to see all the teams out on the course having fun while raising funds for such a worthy cause. A huge thank you to everyone who supported us and donated. Family Matters is vital to so many people in our community and we are delighted to be able to continue to help them with their important work.”
