Sweetwoods Park Golf Club
Huge thanks to the Men’s and Ladies’ Captains of Sweetwoods Park Golf Club, who selected Nourish Community Foodbank as their chosen Charity for 2018-2019.
They raised an amazing £12,067.36 including gift aid.
They ran various fun events and activities throughout the year to raise funds for Nourish.
Captain’s Jo & Mike agreed that the criteria for their choice of Captain’s Charity should be:
- Locally based in the immediate area
- Contributions to be more than just financial
- Impact of our fundraising to be measurable
- Ability to interact directly
"Nourish ticked all our boxes. We look forward to supporting them and their partners to make 2018/19 a successful year."

Walking the South West Coast Path
Paul Eames has undertaken an epic 630 mile walk along the South West Coastal Path on behalf of Sweetwoods Golf Club in order to raise money for Nourish and he did it in an amazing 41 days without a rest day!!
It is Britain's Longest National Trail at 630 miles. The whole trail has 115,000 feet of ascent / descent equivalent to going up and down Mount Everest 4 times!
