GOLF: Help for Heroes day at Brandon Wood


Second tournament for the charity at Wolston club

Golfers will be teeing off next week for their second annual Help for Heroes charity golf day.

Brandon Wood Golf Course and Club, in Wolston, will host the tournament on Friday, August 14 with all proceeds donated to Help for Heroes, a charity which supports injured British servicemen and women and their families.

Competitive action on the day will include a singles 18-hole tournament for both men and women as well as on course challenges such as longest drive, straightest drive and nearest the pin in two shots.

A number of prizes will be awarded to the winning teams including afternoon tea for two at Coombe Abbey Hotel and golf equipment provided by John Reay Golf Centre, in Coventry.

Additional prizes will also be up for grabs in the raffle and auction, which will take place after the tournament.

Neil Orton, manager at Brandon Wood Golf Course and Club, said: “Last year’s tournament proved to be very popular with more than 60 people taking part in the action.

“All of the participants enjoyed the challenges held throughout the day and the event successfully raised a total of £500 for Help for Heroes.

“This year, we hope to smash those figures and attract more golfers to raise even more money for what is a very worthy cause.

“We are especially grateful to the local businesses that have kindly supported the event by donating money and prizes.”

“Participants can also look forward to tea, coffee and morning rolls upon arrival at the course and will also have the choice to opt in for a BBQ which will be held after the tournament.”

A branded Help for Heroes merchandise stand will also be on-site for visitors to learn more about the charity and the valuable work it undertakes to support servicemen and women.
