TWO big-hearted teens raised over £500 for charity when they set up their own golfing tournament.
Joshua Mills and Harrison Mosley, both 13, and both members of Epping Golf Club, in Fluxs Lane, decided to invite their friends over for a sponsored round.
They organised the tournament, which included a raffle, on behalf of Epping-based children’s charity The Dream Factory which is run by Joshua’s mum Avril Mills.
She said: “They both play golf and they know about fund-raising and said they wanted to do something. I left them to it.
“They’re 13-years-old and a lot of work went into this. They first came up with the idea six or seven weeks ago. They put notices up at the golf club and they managed to get 28 players there even though the weather was horrendous. It was absolutely amazing.”
Avril’s next charity event will see her abseiling down Earls Court, in London, this Sunday, September 5, and she can be sponsored by visiting justgiving.com/avrilabseil.
