To date, Hampshire Hackers have raised over £74,500 for local charities, (excluding the gift aid they have received).
This year our charity day will be held at Lee On The Solent golf club on Thursday 13th September.
The cost for a fourball is £270, (still less than many other fundraising events). Places are filling quickly and we would recommend booking early to avoid disappointment, as places are being allocated on a first come, first served basis. For those of you that have attended our events in the past, you will already know that the HHGS Charity Day is one of the best organised golf fundraising events in Hampshire. Our prizes for both winners and raffle are legendary.
Our charities were chosen at our AGM in January, this year and are Abby's Heroes (based from Southampton General Hospital) assists children and teenagers and their families, that are suffering from cancer and The Roberts Centre, based in Portsmouth, helps familys in Portsmouth, Havant and Gosport areas who are struggling to improve their family circumstances which surround homelessness. You can click on their logos, to the left of this page, and they will link you through to their websites.
We held our charity day at Hamptworth Golf & Country Club for 2017. Our chosen charities for this year were Breast Cancer Haven, based in Titchfield, Fareham and Autism Hampshire, based in Whiteley.
The event was another great success and we are pleased to announce that we raised in excess of £7200, beating our target of £4000. Potentially, we have raised £81750 since we started, for great causes.
Thank you for your support, donations and assistance if you helped up us make this happen.
The two charities chosen to recieve our support this year are The Countess Mountbatten Hospice in Southampton and The Flutterby Fund Charity in Bursledon. The hospice offers end of life support to those dying of cancer and also to their families. The Flutterby Fund is a grant making organisation, which seeks to improve the lives of children with physical and mental disabilities from low income families in the UK through the giving of grants to individuals.

This year we held the event at Hamptworth Golf & Country Club on the 15th September.
We are delighted to announce that we raised £5600. Thank you, if you helped in any way.
We would especially like to thank Sainsbury's of Hedge End for their support and also Hamptworth Golf and Country Club for hosting a terrific day.
We always like to say thank you to the people and companies who have helped us and if you clck here you will see a Roll of Honour.
The committee started the preparation and planning in February and it culminated in 22 teams playing. Due to the generosity of donors and players alike, we raised £7030 on the day.
We would especially like to thank Romsey Golf Club, Sainsbury's Hedge End, Lotus F1 Team, Mike Grieshaber as well as everyone who took part in the day.
At our AGM in January 2014 two new charities were chosen to receive our support this year. They were the Cedar School, Nursling, Southampton and the Piam Brown oncology and haematology ward for children at Southampton General Hospital.
The chosen club this year was Romsey Golf Club and was played on Wednesday 17th September. 92 players took to the fairways with a two tee start. Many of our holes were sponsored and our thanks go to Sainsbury's Hedge End for their fantastic support.
We couldn't have asked for a better day. Sunshine and a little breeze and generally not too many hold ups considering the number of players on the course.
The winning team were an actual HHGS team, consisting of Tommy Frampton, Richard Knight, Ray Cook and the Romsey Ladies champion. Their score of 133 points beating the second place of 130 points. This was based on fourballs with the best three scores counting under Stableford rules.
The business end of the day concluded with a lovely four course meal and an auction of some exceptional prizes.
The leaderboard and results are available by clicking here.
Finally, we thank everyone that played a part in this fundraising effort.
This year it was decided to focus raising funds towards two charities and subsequently Ickle Pickles and HMSA were chosen. Ickle Pickles helps raise money for Neo-natal units in hospitals around the UK, but in this area, specifically Portsmouth's Queen Alexandra and Southampton General Hospitals. HMSA is the Hyper-mobility Syndrome, a charity for sufferers of this genetic defect which severely affects joints. It is incurable and debilitating and this is a vital support network for people who look perfectly well but are in considerable pain.

Our day was held at Waterlooville Golf Club on Tuesday 17th September 2013. It was a sell-out and we raised an lot of money. We are proud to say that we raised £7866 + gift aid of around £500, therefore totalling £8366. Fantastic support under the economic conditions that exist.
Thank you so much to all the people who played, donated time, prizes and money to make this event our best ever.
This year we supported 4 local charities. They were The Rainbow Centre, Rose Road, The Petersfield Society for Special Needs and Hannah's Holiday Home Appeal.
The day itself was held at Waterlooville Golf Club who kindly allowed us a 2 tee start which meant that people were not finishing at dusk and all sat down to dinner at a more respectful time.
As always, in fact, more so in the current economic climate, charities need all the help they can get and that's why this year we decided to let 4 charities benefit. Each charity received £968 each. This brings our running total of monies raised to £42,521.
Our charity day this year was on 13th September, held at Rowlands Castle Gold Club for the second year running. This year we were very proud that Dunhill Property Management was our event sponsor. Thank you.
Our aim was to raise in excess of £5,000 and we are delighted to announce that the final figure was £5,600.
Our after dinner entertainment was supplied courtesy of broadcaster, singer and comedian, Shep Woolley (www.shepwoolley.com). This really was THE CHARITY DAY not to miss.
This year, yet again, Tommy Frampton cycled from Paris to Hayling raising yet more money for the charity's coffers. Joined by Yvonne (Tommy's better and certainly more attractive other half) they cycled until they were sore! Next year it is Tommy's intention to cycle from John O'Groats to Lands End.
We always have a Roll of Honour of people and businesses that helped us in our efforts to raise money. Click here for a full list.
Well done Portland Recovery, who won for the second year running.
For 2010, we have again voted in favour of The Rainbow Centre in Fareham. Our Charity golf day was on Tuesday 14th September 2010 and was held at Rowlands Castle Golf Club. Fantastic news too as we raised £4760 approx. Outstanding result and thanks to everyone that contributed to making this a success.
Pared back to allow for the current recession, we still achieved 17 teams and used a shotgun start facility. The day was a success, even though there was heavy rain for the remaining 9 holes. The exact figure that we raised will be published here as soon as is possible. Our beneficiary was again The Rainbow Centre in Fareham.
Thank you to all who helped put this event on, to Southwick Park for their facilities and course, and to everyone who either participated or donated (or both).
The total raised this year was an incredible £9896.00 plus an additional £500+ in gift aid donations. Thank you so much for all your help.
This year's charity day was again successfully held at Cams Hall Estate Golf Club. A full compliment of 30 teams took to the fairways to raise money for the Rainbow Centre, Fareham. Apart from a sudden thunderstorm where most of us became drenched very quickly, and a temporary half hour departure from the course to clubhouse, the weather was excellent. Thank you to all who played, sponsored, donated and worked with us to make this day happen.
As well as supporting The Rainbow Centre, we also purchased a puppy to be trained up to help disabled people for the Canine Partners charity.
Thanks for all your help and support. We have raised 8624.28 net, and with Gift Aid tax break of 28% given by most of those that sponsored Adrian or Christine to lose weight and other donors, this figure is in excess of £9000. It would be fair to say that we and our charities are delighted.
