The charity arm of Captain One Golf Society has made an undisclosed cash donation to the Angel of Hope Center, an orphanage home at Tarkwa in the Western Region.
The donation which was led by founder and president of Captain One Golf Society, Pius Ayeh Appiah, was received by the home with lots of praise and a call for more support.
The founder explained that Angel of Hope Center would be adopted by the professional golfers in the society to train the kids in the game of golf and would be the first home to benefit from the society.
He said the society begun in Tarkwa and although its membership cuts across the country and beyond, it was prudent for them to support places within their roots before moving out.
He said professional golfers are the only people allowed to teach golf in the country and therefore called on more professionals to join the society so that they can realise their dream of taking golf to the less privilege.
The founder mentioned that Captain One Golf Society is a society that has non-political objectives and to foster the interest of members in golf for the promotion of the game of golf.
They are aimed at helping members to maximize all benefits in golf including, exercising, developing skills and making money and also organize golf clinics for schools and orphanages.
They also exist to raise funds for charity cause and enable members to network and socialize. The society currently has 54 members, five professionals, 44 amateur men and five amateur ladies.
The Executive Director of Angel of Hope Center, Madam EsiAntobam, thanked the society for their kind gesture and assured them of her support and assistance to make their dream a reality.
She said the home has been in existence for over a decade and currently have 35 kids with her and the oldest being 27 years who recently completed the University of Mines.
She called on the general public to come on board to assist the home as they pride on the topmost care for the kids.
Members of the society who accompanied the founder were; Moses KojoSassah (member), Prince Appiah (Dep PRO), Kenneth OdengAdade (PRO) and Ernest Appiah (Treasurer).
The team were taken round the facility to have a first-hand view of where the kids stayed and the kind of urgent support they would need.
