The Travers Foundation have got the ball rolling for 2018 thanks to a generous donation from Lamb & Holmes Solicitors.
The volunteer run charity that helps local 13 to 30 year olds improve their skills in sports and the creative and performing arts will use the donation from Lamb & Holmes, to help 19 year old Golfer, Callum Farr from Gretton, Northamptonshire.
Established in 2012, The Travers Foundation supported one hundred and fifty one young people in 2017 and helped them to achieve an incredible 96 Gold, 25 Silver and 18 Bronze medals.
Terry Forsey, who founded the charity, and works alongside an all-volunteer team, says: “I am delighted that Lamb & Holmes have chosen to support The Travers Foundation. We are a local charity, helping local young people and are proud to be working with a local firm of solicitors who want to give back to their community.”
Callum Farr has been playing Golf for the last ten years and is a member of the Northamptonshire County Golf Club. He had a successful 2017 competing in the UK and European amateur events, winning The Royal Birkdale Silver Goblet. He also competed in the Faldo Series winning the England Midlands Championship at Trentham in August and achieving a top 10 finish in the Grand Final in Abu Dhabi.
The donation from Lamb & Holmes will contribute towards the coaching and competition support which Callum will receive from The Travers Foundation for the 2018 season.
It is important for Lamb & Holmes to give something back to the local community. The majority of their existing clients are locally based and having been providing law services for over 200 years, they understand how vital it is to support local charities and groups such as The Travers Foundation.
Glenn Robinson, who is a Partner at Lamb & Holmes, says: “As a responsible local legal firm we’re always keen to support groups and organisations in the areas where we live and work.
“Charitable organisations play such an important role within their communities, so we were only too happy to make a donation to The Travers Foundation and would like to wish them every success for their fundraising attempts this year.”
