Fifty-seven golfers from Masvingo teed off for a good cause as they played to raise funds for the Commander Zimbabwe Defence Forces Golf Charity Fund.
The Zimbabwe National Army HQ4 Infantry Brigade this year partnered with a local construction company in Masvingo and held a golf tournament where they raised $1550 for the ZDF charity funds.
The funds are used to assist less privileged members of society.
The captain of the Masvingo Golf Club Mr Sternely Kondongwe, applauded the golfers for coming in their numbers to support a noble cause.
“We support charity and we will always seek to help the less privileged in our society, said Mr Kondongwe.
ZNA HQ 4 Infantry Brigade deputy commander Colonel Blessing Maraire applauded Jadecon Construction for funding the golf tournament and called on other business entities from Masvingo to also come on board to fundraise for charity.
“Masvingo has pioneered the journey this year for the commander golf tournament. We want to thank our sponsors and also want to appeal to more companies to join us as we fundraise for charity,” Colonel Maraire said.
Alpha Cottages, which houses orphaned children in Masvingo, also got a shot in the arm, as the ZNA and the construction company donated 20 blankets and dug 3 fish ponds at the home as part of their community responsibility programme.
