Story

We need you!

S&G Response are bringing people together to raise money in aid of Street Support Manchester through our ‘One Million Yards’ golfing challenge, and we would love for you to get involved! You can make a difference to people experiencing homelessness at this very moment. This is a critical time as homelessness is on the rise with an estimated 1 in every 200 people in the UK sleeping rough or in temporary housing during 2017. In Manchester alone 1 in every 154 people are experiencing homelessness.

We understand that ordinary just won’t cut it if we want to reach our fundraising goal of £18,000. This is why our dedicated team are committed to help those in need through, what may seem like an unattainable goal; hitting golf balls one million yards in only twenty-four hours.

This one of a kind event will be taking place from 3:30am on Tuesday the 24th July at Trafford Golf Centre in Manchester; everyone is welcome! There will be various activities for our visitors to take part in during the day – including getting involved with our golf challenges, making donations and entering into our prize draw with a chance to win big, or even stepping up and taking a swing to help the team achieve their goal. 

How will it work?
Our S&G Response team of four will be working hard to ensure they drive their golf balls 250,000 yards each, within the twenty-four hour time limit. Using FlightScope’s state of the art radar technology ‘Mevo’, in conjunction with the ‘Mevo’ app, each shot will be accurately measured and recorded to determine the accumulative yards during the event.

Who are Street Support?

Street Support works in partnership with people experiencing homelessness, charities, voluntary groups and concerned citizens. Through their work every £18,000 raised will provide one person experiencing homelessness with a year’s employment and training to help them improve their living circumstances. If you help us to achieve our fundraising goal, we could change the lives of one person for the better.

Why are we doing this?
At S&G Response we take our corporate social responsibility seriously and we want to do as much as we can to support the local community. Every year a target is set for our fundraising goal, which we achieve through multiple charitable efforts, donations and volunteer work to support those who need it most.
