SAN MIGUEL GOLF SOCIETY.
STATEMENT ON BEHALF OF THE COMMITTEE.
RE – DESTINATION OF CHARITABLE DONATIONS.
The generosity of a weekly gathering of some big-hearted golfers rarely numbering more than fifty has resulted in an amazing total of over €6,000 finding its way to some very worthy causes.
Little did any of us realise that from some impromptu charity collections around 3 years ago that the now infamous “blob tin” would make as many appearances as it has. More often than not it's in the trusty hands of its chirpy custodian, Tony Smale, who has been known to prise the last cent out of many a pocket and purse.....did he really work for the Inland Revenue in the UK ?
You, the members and guests, are the donors and it is only right that we have therefore deliberated long and hard listening on the way to members' views to arrive at a suitable “SMGS policy” for the final destination of the fruits of all our efforts.
S.M.G.S. Charity policy
The SMGS committee has agreed that the distribution of all charity donations will be fundamentally made on a local, worthwhile cause basis with the final beneficiaries being decided by the committee. Each recipient will have been checked out where necessary and the donation will be suitably acknowledged and receipted. (To date, this has been done).
At the committee's discretion other more well known causes and those regarding worldwide disasters may well be considered (e.g. Help for Heroes, Poppy Day, Tsunami & Earthquake appeals) depending on their perceived suitability.
The committee extends its warm thanks and appreciation to Tony Smale & all other members who selflessly give their assistance to the collections.
Thank you all and please keep giving what you can.
Phil Birtwistle, President SMGS, on behalf of your committee. 1st August 2016.
