Golfers are being invited to tee-off for a charity golf day being hosted by Mayor of Erewash Councillor Abey Stevenson on Friday, April 28.

Teams of keen golfers are needed for the event at the Erewash Valley Golf Club, with proceeds going to the mayor’s charity pot, from which donations will be distributed to help local good causes.

Coun Stevenson said: “I hope as many people as possible will join me for what will be a fun and enjoyable day as well as a successful fundraising event for local charities.”

The event will be a four person Stableford Am-Am Competition off three-quarters handicap, with the best two scores at each hole to count.

There is a maximum handicap of 24 for men and 36 for women and prizes will be awarded for the winning, second and third placed teams, together with honours for the nearest the pin and nearest the pin in two.

The fee is £160 per team, which includes refreshments prior to the game and a two-course meal at the conclusion of play.

The presentation of prizes will take place at around 7.30pm.

Local businesses can also help raise charity funds by sponsoring a hole for the day or donating raffle prizes.

Entry forms and more details are available from Erewash Borough Council’s civic support office at Ilkeston Town Hall.

Events will be held throughout the year to raise money for the Mayor’s ‘charity pot’ from which charitable groups and organisations from within the borough will benefit at the end of his term of office.
