Golfers from Tynemouth are clubbing together to raise money for St Oswald’s Hospice with a charity golf day, organised by North Shields Rotary Club.

The event – on Friday, June 26, at Tynemouth Golf Club – is a Stableford Competition open to teams of four, maximum handicaps are 28 for men and 36 for ladies.

Entry per team is £160 which includes refreshments and a two course meal.

The golf day was founded in 1997 and this is the eighth year that St Oswald’s has been chosen as the beneficiary and in that time the event has raised nearly £40,000 for the Hospice.

Committee member Patrick Waller tells us: “The Rotary Club of North Shields is now in their 19th year of organising charity golf tournaments and in that time has risen over £91,000 for charities such as St Oswald’s.

“This year we are aiming to break £100,000 so we need as many teams as possible to make that happen.

“The golf day is always a brilliant day and people will also be supporting a local charity, St Oswald’s is such a worthwhile cause to support.”

Amy Slater, fundraiser at St Oswald’s, said: “We’re so grateful to both Tynemouth Golf Club and the Rotary Club for their long-term support of the Hospice.

“Without the support of our local community we simply couldn’t raise the £7m needed to care for our patients and their families each year.”
