More than 2 MSEK to the children

The Charity golf tournament “Barngolfen” was arranged for the ninth time at Hills Golf & Sports Club outside Gothenburg, became yet a success with a record number of participating teams and money raised to the children at the Queen Silvia Children’s Hospital.

The largest charity golf in Sweden, Barngolfen is arranged by the Foundation for Queen Silvia Children’s Hospital. The money raised is used for making life easier for the children and to foster the recovery by creating a healing environment and meaningful moments. The Queen Silvia Children’s Hospital is the largest hospital for children in Sweden.

Barngolfen is making a difference and during the years, the foundation has invested in portable computers and wireless networks, support for siblings, ‘talk to the clown’ and healing rooms. The year, the money is earmarked for the remake of the radiotherapy department corridors and rooms into fantasy full and stimulating environment.  

34 teams participated competition, each of them with 5 people including one golf pro and one celebrity from the sports or media.

– It’s quite remarkable that we managed to raise more than 2.2 million SEK to the children this year. This money is welcome to the children at the hospital and we want to address a big ‘thank you’ to all who have contributed to make this fantastic result. This year the money is dedicated to financing a large remake of the corridors and rooms at the radiotherapy department into an archipelago theme with docks, fishermen’s’ sheds, the sound of waves and seagulls. This year, we also saw the fantastic initiative ‘Kids for kids’ where a group of young teenagers had worked and collected money to contribute to the foundation and the children, comments Tomas Gedda, head of the Foundation for Queen Silvia’s Children’s Hospital.

FlexLink’s engagement in Barngolfen started in 2011 and since 2012, FlexLink is one of the main sponsors of the event. Beside the financial commitment, many of FlexLink’s employees and their friends contributed with voluntary work.

– We are very happy for the good results this year’s Barngolfen giving the children additional healing environment, which especially important for the children spending longer time at the hospital. The engagement in Barngolfen is important to us at FlexLink and is part of activities we run in the local societies where we operate, which is in totally 30 countries, comments Mattias Perjos, FlexLink’s CEO.
