It was recognised from the beginning by members when they were enjoying sporting events and luncheons, that they should be mindful of others less fortunate. Accordingly it was decided to register the Pedmore Sporting Club Trust Fund as a charity and to raise funds at each event to be distributed to needy local charitable causes.
Over the years, the outstanding fund raising capabilities and generosity of the members has raised and donated in excess of one million pounds for local needy causes, without any deduction for expenses, which are paid by members’ subscriptions.
This started in a small way with £881 being raised in the first year while the Millennium year produced the highest amount raised £81,000.
During year 2013, with economic restraints, more than £53,000 was donated to local needy causes. All funds raised are donated.
