The County Club raises over Â£30,000 for charity which helps keep Guildford town centre safe at night
The County Club, in Guildford, has raised a staggering Â£30,602.75 for its chosen charity for 2016 â€“ The Street Angels.Â
Every year The County Club, on Guildford High Street, chooses a local charity to support, donating proceeds from any fundraising events hosted throughout the year to said charity.Â
Set up in 2008 by church volunteers, Guildford Street Angels patrol the town centre on Friday, Saturday and Monday nights to support those who have become vulnerable after having too much to drink.
The County Club General Manager, Kevin Lorimer said: â€œA few of our members have spent a â€˜night on the townâ€™ with the Street Angels over the summer and experienced first-hand the amazing work these volunteers do.Â
â€œFrom picking up discarded glass bottles, to ensuring vulnerable young adults get a taxi ride home, there is no doubt that our streets are a safer place thanks to the work they do and we are delighted to support them with this donation.â€
The County Club was formed in 1882 as a private member club, where professionals can meet and socialise. The club and its members take an active role in community life, working with the council, local businesses and raising money for good causes.
