Award Winning Resort Launches Partnership with Matt Hampson Foundation
The world-renowned Belfry Hotel & Resort has announced that The Matt Hampson Foundation, which supports young people seriously injured through sport, is its national charity for 2019/20.
Matt, paralysed from the neck down in an accident while training with the England U21 rugby team in 2005, helped establish the Foundation in 2010 and it continues to go from strength to strength with the ethos ‘Get Busy Living’.
In order to support the charity, staff from The Belfry will be utilising the skills, expertise and people at the foundations Get Busy Living Centre, in Leicestershire which opened in October.
The Belfry hosted the first-ever Matt Hampson Foundation Golf Day on the world famous Brabazon which raised £20,000 for the charity last year. They are thrilled to host a return visit in September.
As it approaches the end of its first decade, the new partnership is a significant one for the Matt Hampson Foundation.
Chief Executive Officer Tommy Cawston said: “We can’t thank everyone at The Belfry enough for their support, which will make a huge impact on so many areas of our charity.
“As well as helping us with fundraising, they will also help the Get Busy Living Centre continue to thrive. We’re so grateful to them and excited about what we will achieve together and ultimately this will result in us helping more and more young people seriously injured through sport.”
The Belfry, four-time Ryder Cup host course, also supports Tamworth-based Simon’s Heroes, which helps local children in need. They have raised thousands to date, through previous charity partnerships supporting both local and national charities.
The Belfry is set in 550 acres of countryside, has three golf courses, luxurious guest bedrooms and suites, meeting and event rooms, restaurants and bars, an award-winning club house and a Spa and Leisure Club.
