THE Forget-Me-Not Trust are aiming to boost their funds with a fabulous Spring Golf Day to be staged in April at Huddersfield.
The challenging Fixby course will be the super setting for the first-ever Golf Day actually arranged by the Charity themselves (other outside parties have previously organised golf days in support of the cause), which organisers are hoping will boost the coffers as building work gets under way on the Children’s Hospice at Brackenhall.
The golf event is scheduled for Friday, April 15, and is an 18-hole competition aimed at teams of four players, with a shotgun start.
The competition is open to all golfers, and the teams can be comprised of any combination of men and women golfers.
The entry fee is £300 per team, which as well as the golf, includes sandwiches on arrival, a two course dinner at the end of the competition, along with a guest speaker, and a charity auction.
Incorporated into the event will be a ‘longest drive’ competition, a ‘nearest the pin’ prize, and a putting competition.
Forget-Me-Not Trust Fund managers are hoping that companies and business will not only be keen to enter teams, but possibly also to offer some form of sponsorship for what promises to be an exciting day of golf and entertainment.
Helping the Trust raise funds are a trio of students from the University of Huddersfield, who as part of their events and management course are seeking hole sponsorship for the day.
Initially the aim is to fill the competition with 18 teams (one starting on each hole), but the club have indicated there is the capacity to take a few more teams, should there be the demand for more places.
Anyone interested in entering a team, or willing to offer any form of sponsorship can contact fundraiser Gina Fielding on 01484 487570 or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The Forget-Me-Not-Trust are funding the building of a Children’s Hospice and Respite Centre at Fell Greave, Brackenhall, where the groundwork has already begun with diggers having moved onto the site back in November to get the project under way.
