THE PINMAR CHARITY FUND
THANK YOU TO ALL INVOLVED IN OUR 30TH ANNIVERSARY PINMAR GOLF FOR YOUR FANTASTIC SUPPORT AND PARTICIPATION, OVER €1MILLION NOW RAISED IN TOTAL!
The 2018 event had 288 golfers and collectively over 800 attendees across the three day event, who along with our wonderful sponsors and hard-working volunteers raised a magnificent figure of €92,065 for the Pinmar Charity Fund which pushes the 30 year total beyond the €1million mark to €1,036,480. A very special way to celebrate our 30th year, the generosity of our guests, industry partners and sponsors is humbling.
Through the charitable fundraising from the Pinmar Golf Tournament we have now raised over one million euros to date, which has been used to great effect supporting a host of worthy Mallorca based and industry related charities. In the past year funds have been shared across a wide range of causes both here and abroad, including: Joves Navegants, Fundación Handisports, OK Prosthetics, Tyume Valley Schools, Sail 4 Cancer, Asdica, Serve On and Shambhala Fundación.
While we will continue to support such charities, we have also introduced an environmental focus to our fundraising activity and will apportion 25 per cent of the total to projects that are focused on marine conservation.
So thank you again to all our golfers, guests, organizers and volunteers for your continued support and generosity and to all our Birdie, Eagle, Albatross and Condor sponsors without whom the Pinmar Golf would simply not exist.

Yacht Zenobia handpicked the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, My Name’5 Doddie Foundation and the MS Society to receive their share of the 2018 fundraising as 2017 tournament winners. They will pass on the mantle to 2018 winners Tatasu to distribute 25 per cent of the funds raised at this year’s Pinmar Golf.
We are the RNLI: the charity that saves lives at sea. Every day of every year, people of all backgrounds get into danger in the water. It’s a problem that we’re here to tackle. Our volunteer lifeboat crews provide a 24-hour rescue service in the UK and Ireland, and our seasonal lifeguards look after people on busy beaches. Our Flood Rescue Team helps those affected by flooding.
RNLI crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,200 lives since 1824 but we’re more than a rescue service. We influence, supervise and educate people too. Our Community Safety teams explain the risks and share safety knowledge with anyone going out to sea or to the coast. And our international teams work with like-minded organisations to help tackle drowning in communities at risk all around the world.

The Foundation is committed to helping improve the lives of those affected by Motor Neurone Disease. We can help through grant support. This is available to individuals and families and is administered by our friends at MND Association and MND Scotland.
Doddie Weir OBE is one of rugby’s most recognisable personalities. He earned 61 caps for Scotland during a successful playing career, represented the British and Irish Lions on their successful tour to South Africa in 1997, and won championships with his two club sides, Melrose and Newcastle Falcons. A talented, committed and athletic lock forward, Doddie is now facing his biggest challenge. In June 2017 the Scot revealed he was suffering from Motor Neurone Disease. From the outset, Doddie has been driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research into this, as yet, incurable disease.
We're the MS Society, we're a community of people living with MS, researchers, fundraisers, campaigners and volunteers. We know together we're strong enough to stop MS, and we're working hard to make it happen. We’ve got ambitious plans for MS treatments, research, care and support. And we work with our community to make them happen. Together, we can stop MS.

The Blue Marine Foundation exists to combat over-fishing and the destruction of biodiversity – arguably the largest problem facing the world’s oceans – by delivering practical conservation solutions, including the creation of large-scale marine reserves. We are working with them to expand their Mediterranean portfolio and to help establish a Mallorca-based project which the Pinmar team can all get involved with.

Dear Nick, Peter and Team,
We want to say a very big thank you for the donation we received from last year’s event. It is very much appreciated and an association that we are very proud of. It means so much to us as a small charity that the Pinmar Golf has continued to support us and that the sponsors, supporters and guests appreciate our work and want to help us support the families who are in desperate need of a break.
We have seen a steep increase in the number of families referred to us over the past year and we are aiming to provide respite breaks for a record number of beneficiaries in 2018 to keep up with the demand. It is only possible because we have wonderful supporters like you and the generosity of this caring industry.
Thank you so much and we hope you have a very successful event again this year. Below is feedback we received recently from a family who has been on a much-needed break:
“Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We have just returned from a break that would not have been possible without the support of your charity. It allowed us time together as a family, away from appointments and thinking about cancer. We laughed a lot and spent quality relaxing time together which hasn't happened for a long time! We are forever grateful to you and the generous people who donate and make these valuable breaks possible. Thank you!” Jessica

Dear All at Pinmar,
It was with such joy that I received the phone call this morning, notifying us that Shambhala would be benefitting from the incredible work you all do in your annual golf tournament.
To hear from Nick Entwisle that the winners of the Pinmar Golf event, MY Zenobia, had included Shambhala in their allocation of charity funds, well that was just incredibly unexpected and massively appreciated. From all of us at Shambhala and especially the youths whose lives are so massively impacted, THANK YOU ZENOBIA for remembering us, for including us and for believing in us to make us one of your allocated charities.
Every year I actually pinch myself with the magic that has become Shambhala, I look at the youths who come to us for help and I watch them as they leave and enter employment, their lives irreversibly changed.
This year we opened up our doors to two young Syrian refugees, you can’t even imagine their hardship and how desperate they were to find support, and we increased our numbers from 20 to 25. Next year we will with any luck open up our first Shambhala centre so that we can help so many more youths and not limit our numbers.
When we open our Youth Centre there will be a little plaque specially reserved for Pinmar because we couldn’t have done this without your endless support. To the winners a special thank you and I hope one day you will visit our Shambhala Centre and feel great pride that you were part of this!
Thank you, all of you, so much.
