KIRKLEES businesses people are being urged to get their golfing gear together and help raise cash for charity.

Meltham Golf Club will host an exclusive golf day on Thursday, August 23, in aid of Kirkwood Hospice’s Capital Appeal.

The fun-filled day out is the idea of Capital Appeal marketing committee member Liz Boardall, of Armitage Sykes Solicitors in Huddersfield.

Competitions and attractions on the day will include prizes for furthest distance, most accurate shot and best two players per hole, a putting competition, prizes for the best-dressed players and the most creative shot, a three-course evening meal with wine and an after-dinner speaker.

Said Liz: “We are currently searching for teams of four to register for the day at a cost of £40 per head. This is the perfect opportunity for a spot of team building with your colleagues. Places are limited, so please call and sign up your team without delay.”

The hospice at Dalton is also looking for businesses and individuals to sponsor a hole on the course at a cost of £100. Companies sponsoring a hole will also have their name inscribed onto a single brick in the new permanent path to be laid in hospice grounds.

Organisers are also looking for donations as prizes for competition winners as well as for a raffle.

The money raised at the golf day will go towards the £3m cost of the extension and re-development of our in-patient unit at the hospice.
