Tee off and raise money for local charity

Local golfers are being invited to enter a team into the Chairman's Charity Golf Day taking place on Friday 14th September at The South Buckinghamshire 18 hole Colt/Hawtree course in Stoke Poges.

Teams of three are being invited to take part to raise funds for the Chairman's chosen charity, Buckinghamshire Mind, a local charity providing advice and support to anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They also campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding of mental illness.

The cost of entry is £165 per team which includes breakfast, 18 holes of golf and a three course lunch. The day will commence at approximately 8am and includes lunch, prize giving and an auction. Teams will be given a free practice round before the event. The number of team entries is limited to 21, so enter soon to avoid disappointment.

The main sponsor for the event is Berkeley Homes (Oxford and Chiltern) Ltd and Tithe Farm have sponsored the 10th hole where golfers will be given the opportunity of winning a £30,000 car on the day, if they get a hole in one. Further sponsorship and advertising is being sought along with donations for the raffle and auction. Sponsorship boards are a great way to advertise your company while supporting a worthwhile cause. All individuals and companies supporting the event will be acknowledged in the official programme which is distributed on the day.

The last charity golf day was a huge success seeing over £5,000 being raised for charity and I hope we can once again raise lots of money. This year the funds will be used to set up a project, supported by Buckinghamshire Mind, in South Bucks infant schools which will offer training for pupils, their families and teachers to help tackle the stigma surrounding mental illness. So please, do sign up to help support this extremely worthy cause.
