The British & International Golf Greenkeepers Association (BIGGA) has accepted a generous donation from Origin Enterprises after staff at the agri-services organisation selected BIGGA’s Greenkeepers Benevolent Fund as one of its charities of the year.

Origin Enterprises is the parent company of Origin Amenity Solutions, and employees nominated the benevolent fund for a donation of £1,200 as part of a ‘Spring into Action’ campaign.

The Greenkeepers Benevolent Fund exists to assist current or past greenkeepers and their dependents, to provide financial support and practical help during difficult times.

Origin Amenity Solutions commercial director Andy Russell said: “I am delighted that we were able to make this donation to such a worthy cause. Working with, and giving back to the community, is high on our agenda and this is a charity that aligns closely with our values.

“Our teams around the business have been challenged to Spring into Action with a series of fitness-based activities. We had colleagues swimming, running, walking, planting trees, and cycling – anything they chose that got them moving and raised much-needed money for the benevolent fund.”

BIGGA CEO Jim Croxton added: “We all hope never to need the support that a benevolent fund can provide, yet we also know that times are tough for many. If a grant or offer of support can relieve some of the burden and help as a family tries to get back on track, then any small donation can prove priceless.”
