Golf Challenge & Gala Dinner

at Royal Mid Surrey Golf Club

Hosted by Fredericks Foundation in partnership with RandDTax.

After a Fantastic Result at last year’s Charity Golf Day & Dinner, we are delighted to announce that booking is now open for this years event on Friday 20th September 2019!

Last year the weather was beautiful and sunny and we had 14 teams enjoying the 18-hole championship course at the Royal Mid Surrey Golf Club followed by a very competitive putting competition! More guests arrived in the evening for a delicious three course dinner and amazing auction.

A massive thank you to all our supporters who came along and donated so generously.

For more information or to book a team please contact Duncan Parker at

 We look forward to seeing you at this year’s event!

Fredericks Online Community FAQ’s

What is the Fredericks Online Community?

The Fredericks online community enables all stakeholders to simply and easily communicate with one another, via forums and bulletin boards; and share information about themselves, their products or services, their ideas and challenges, their solutions, successes and user stories.

What does the Fredericks Online Community Do?

·      Profile pages for you to describe yourself, your company, and advertise your products, services, experience and specialities.

·      Newsfeeds for you to make announcements to the community at large about any relevant topic, including new products and services, trends in your industry, recent regulation changes and events..

·      Blogs All members can post blogs about any relevant topic, or about new products and services, case studies, events and anything of general interest to the community.

·      Forums The forums are central to the community. This is where members of the community can discuss topics of interest with each other. Members can make suggestions concerning what forums they would like. Forums can be open to all or restricted to certain groups within the community.

·      Library The library will grow as the community progresses. All members can submit their own articles, whitepapers and case studies, to Fredericks for possible inclusion in the Library. It is intended that the library will be a valuable resource of business information for our clients, to give them a greater understanding and chances of success.

What are the Benefits for Our Clients?

Our clients tend to be limited to having contact with only two sources of information and advice; Fredericks Foundation itself and their mentor.

The Fredericks Community greatly improves this situation and enables all clients not only to communicate with each other, but also with an extensive network of knowledgeable and experienced business owners who have already faced the challenges that you are facing daily.

What are the Benefits for our Volunteers, Mentors and Partners?

Fredericks Foundation is very fortunate and honoured to have an extensive network of very willing, experienced and generous volunteers and partners. For a few years now, we have been conscious of the fact that many volunteers have been getting frustrated that we are not making greater use of their time, knowledge and experience.

The Fredericks Community is a part of our solution to harness the power of our volunteer network, to help our client base, to give them a greater chance of success. The community enables mentors to have discussions between themselves and to learn from each other’s experiences.

Who Can Join the Fredericks Online Community?

The Fredericks Online Community is avaible to our Clients, Volunteers, Mentors, Partners and Staff. There is no charge to join the Fredericks Community.

Call to Action

From now onwards The Fredericks Community will be one of the main ways that we communicate with our clients, volunteers and partners. Make certain that you gain all the benefits that the community offers you.
