Gather golf buddies and help children’s charity

TIME FOR TEE: Guy Mathews, Kim London, Hilary Mathews and Tony Mathews of Mathews Shoes at last year’s Round Table Children’s Wish charity golf day at Dudsbury Golf Club

Spending a day on the golf course this summer could help make wishes come true for children with life-threatening illnesses.

Round Table Children’s Wish is teeing up its charity golf day at Dudsbury Golf Club in Ferndown on Friday, August 14.

This is the Bournemouth-based charity’s 30th anniversary year and it’s hoping to raise a record amount to help its work with poorly children all over the country.

The cost is £60 per player – £240 for a team of four – and there is also a varied range of sponsorship packages which enable businesses to promote themselves to an audience of golfers and business owners.

The day begins with a hot drink and bacon bap for golfers before they tackle the 18 holes. There are competitions for nearest the pin and the longest drive.

A two-course late lunch follows, along with a raffle, auction and prize-giving.

Over the last 30 years Round Table Children’s Wish has helped make wishes come true for many youngsters and their families, and all the money raised at the golf day will help continue this work.

The wishes have ranged from family holidays to Disneyland, meetings with famous heroes or a longed-for present.

Round Table Children’s Wish fundraising officer Clare Kyrillou said: “This should be a great day for golfers and we’re really looking forward to our fifth charity day at Dudsbury.

“We’d love businesses to get a team together and join us on August 14 – it’s for a great cause and it’s always a fun day.”
