WE ARE a new social enterprise, called LinkedUp Fundraising, and we are raising money for charities through event management.

Earlier this month we organised a golf day at The Macdonald Botley Park Hotel in aid of Wetwheels, a charity that takes disabled or disadvantaged people out on the Solent on a customised boat.

The event was sponsored by Portsmouth-based Affinion International Print Services and people pledged their support by putting in a team.

It was a wonderful day and fun was had by all.

Southampton Boat Show sponsors PSP were the winning team and Graham Barton from BBC’s Homes Under The Hammer conducted the auction with the whole day raising over £2,500 in aid of Wetwheels.

I want to thank everybody who contributed to the success of the day and remind readers they can vote for Wetwheels in The News’ Cash for Communities competition.

LinkedUp Fundraising holds many charity events in the Portsmouth area and Wetwheels is only one of the many charities to benefit from our service.

Wessex Cancer Trust and Headway are others to benefit. The success of this Wetwheels Solent event shows quite what the people of Portsmouth can do when they join in.

Anyone can attend LinkedUp’s community events and by simply buying a ticket and having a good time you can invest in the communities of support for tomorrow, helping the people of Portsmouth by supporting worthwhile causes and charities.
