Sleeptight Beds Charity Golf Day 2018 Huge Success

The results are in, Sleeptight Beds annual Charity Golf day held at True Fit Golf, Penketh, has been a huge success raising £6000 for local foundations; Chesnut Lodge Special School and Warrington & Halton Neo Natal Department. Each foundation is focused on catering and servicing the differing needs for children and babies in the local area.  In addition to this a local Dog Rescue Home will receive a £500 share of the money raised.

Sleeptight Beds handed the cheque over for £2,750 at Chesnut Lodge Special School this morning. The money given is a welcome addition to the school’s Sensory Garden fund. The new, re-designed, long-lasting, multi-purpose Sensory Garden is now over half way to target. Once built it will feature a range of areas for scientific discovery and investigation, a multi-level road for mobility and wheelchair practise, wind and water and light elements, weird and wonderful seating and planting areas and much, much more.

Helen, Managing Director at Sleeptight Beds said: “Sleeptight beds is determined to make its mark in the local community by helping and raising money where we can. This year’s event was a huge success and we are delighted with the response from all of our guests who have dug deep to support our charities. Raising £6,000 on the day, was a fantastic effort”  

Sleeptight Beds held their annual charity golf day this year at True Fit Golf, a total of 17 golf teams teed off in the less than perfect weather conditions but were soon rewarded with blue skies and sunshine, even if it did stay cold as the early morning rain clouds moved off.

Garry, Director at Sleeptight Beds said: “we are over the moon that our 3rd annual golf day has been such a huge success, raising £6000 to be split evenly between the foundations has made us very proud and well worth the effort”

The event didn’t stop at the final Tee. Later that evening non-golfers joined the charity event for the evening dinner celebration, also held at True Fit Golf, which was accompanied by, music, food and auction to raise even more money for the two foundations.

Jude Director at Sleeptight Beds said: “After such a successful charity golf day we would also like to thank everyone that got involved in making sure the event was such a success. We had teams from the local business community as well as the manufactures and other businesses that work directly with us at Sleeptight Beds come together to make sure that our charity golf day was a huge success once again”

Sleeptight beds will be giving the other cheque over to Warrington Neonatal Unit later this week.

 

About the Foundations

Warrington Neonatal Unit, provides expert, round-the-clock care for newborn babies who are ill or born prematurely. Over 400 babies receive the expert care of the unit each year. Whilst the unit mainly cares for babies born locally, staff also take in babies from further afield as part of the neonatal network which ensures that babies get the care they need as soon as possible, even if local units are full. Currently the neonatal unit at Warrington Hospital is equipped with three intensive care cots and a total of 18 spaces for a mix of high dependency and special care babies.

Chesnut Lodge School is a community special school in Widnes, catering for students from 2 to 16 years of age. It has been designated as a centre of excellence for pupils with complex physical/medical needs and there are an increasing number of pupils being admitted with profound and multiple learning difficulties, sensory impairments and/or communication difficulties. Some of their pupils have life limiting medical conditions. The clientele at Chestnut Lodge has changed significantly over the years and they now admit many more pupils with complex medical and sensory needs.  These numbers will continue to increase with further advances in modern medical technology.  Pupils on roll now require more and more resources in order to access any kind of curriculum, from specialised wheelchairs, class chairs, standing frames, communication devices, specialised tables and writing aids to name but a few. A sensory rich environment and focused sensory activities are vital for our students to engage and thrive.
