Golf with a difference to raise funds for charity

Participants in the annual Algoa Cares Charity Golf Day in Gqeberha will have the opportunity to witness and challenge blind golfers through a partnership between Algoa Cares and the Nkosinathi Foundation of-and-for Blind and Partially Sighted People.

The foundation has been selected as the beneficiary of the golf day, which will be hosted at the PE Golf Club on Friday, March 1.

“Nkosinathi impressed us with their holistic approach to supporting partially sighted and blind people,” says Algoa FM managing director, Alfie Jay.

“We are particularly excited about our new Low Vision Services project, which will support adults who have, or are in the process of losing their sight,” says Brian Bezuidenhout, Nkosinathi Foundation director.

“At present, there is no further support in our region for a patient who cannot be further assisted by ophthalmologists or opticians.

“This is devastating for the individuals, their families, and their medical practitioners.

“Our new service will provide the support they need to adapt,” he says.

The theme for the 2024 Algoa Cares Charity Golf Day is “Groovy Greens: Rockin’ the ’80s”.

Four-balls and sponsorships can be booked through Algoa Cares on the Algoa FM website.
