CanDo Lettings are holding their second charity golf day at Cardiff Golf Club, sponsored by Rumney Funeral Home on Friday 18th September.
Last year the lettings agency, based in Roath, raised over £2,700 for homeless charity, Llamau. This year they will be supporting a local employment and training scheme, Realise your Potential.
Francesca Coles, Manager of CanDo Lettings said: “We have chosen to raise money for Realise your Potential this year because the work they do to help people into employment links very closely with the work that we do in helping to create sustainable tenancies for our tenants.”
Realise your Potential supports their members to undertake work placements and training opportunities as well as providing one to one coaching and advice to help people get the skills, experience and confidence needed to achieve their goals.
Alessa Hill, Employment and Training Co-ordinator at Realise your Potential said: “We are delighted and honored to have been chosen as CanDo Lettings’ named charity. Over the last year Realise your Potential has supported 26 members into employment, 25 into volunteering positions and helped 36 attend one or more training courses.
The money raised from the golf day will be used to set up a training bursary for Realise your Potential members. The cost of training and courses is very often the main barrier that stops many individuals becoming work ready. This financial assistance and the ongoing support from Realise your Potential will give members the best chance of making significant life changes.”
Spaces are still available to enter a team of four, at only £200 which includes breakfast rolls and coffee on arrival, 18 holes of golf, a two-course meal, raffle and charity auction and a nearest the pin competition on the new simulator.
