Hever Castle welcomes visitors from Compaid

September 06 2022 | Castle Golf Groups

Staff from Compaid and those helped by the charity visited Hever Castle & Gardens on 5 September as part of a fundraising partnership with Hever Castle Golf & Wellbeing.

Current Ladies Captain Paula Stack has chosen to support the organisation which helps disabled, older and other vulnerable people to overcome the barriers of social and digital exclusion, and to live their lives to the full as her charity for 2022.

Each year, thousands of people use Compaid’s digital skills training and accessible transport services in and around the South East of England.

Working in partnership with local authorities, housing associations, job centres and other charities, their staff and volunteers change lives for the better every day.

The group were able to enjoy the 150 acre stunning grounds and the historic Castle as part of their day.

Paula explained why she chose to support Compaid: “I wanted a local charity and I was very impressed by the way they looked after my friend’s mother who became disabled in later life. Having visited the day centre in Paddock Wood I was struck by the enjoyment everyone was getting from their day.”

Ife Disu from Compaid said: “Spending Monday at Hever Castle was a wonderful experience. Exploring the historic grounds and the beautiful gardens with the clients was truly heart-warming, and hearing their excitement throughout was the cherry on top. The number of photos we took is testament to how much fun we all had. We are so grateful to Hever Castle and their staff, Paula Stack of the Hever Castle Golf Club, and the volunteers from Cripps Pemberton Greenish who made this trip a great success for everyone who came along.”
