This annual event is open to all golfers – you don’t have to be a member at Birstall. Teams of four can enter for £60. All proceeds will go to Birstall BAGs and there will be prizes on offer for winning teams. The first prize is a four-ball game at either the Celtic Manor (Montgomerie or Roman Road course) or the Forest of Arden golf resort.

Last year the club raised a fantastic £2,000 for the charity and hopes to beat that total this year. There will be light refreshments on the 10th hole and food served afterwards. There will also be a raffle, with prizes kindly donated from local people and businesses.

Birstall BAGS operates in and around Birstall and Leicestershire and seeks to bring people together to raise funds to support cancer services used by the local community. Birstall BAGS works with other local charities to provide services that support members of the local community who are living with a diagnosis of cancer.

Emma Shaw of Birstall BAGS commented: “We’re so grateful to Birstall Golf Club for letting us hold this great event again. Everyone seems to really enjoy the day and we’ve been very lucky to be the club’s chosen charity for the last 3 years. Thanks to everyone who helps make it happen.”

John Clayton, who organises the annual event, said: “This is a great event and very popular. We welcome players of all levels so please come along to raise money for Birstall BAGs, a fantastic, local charity which helps many people. It’s a really enjoyable day – there are great prizes on offer and you’ll be helping a very worthy cause.”
