Get in swing for charity golf day

Chief Fire Officer Ian Hayton

Cleveland Fire Brigade’s Chief Fire Officer Ian Hayton will be taking part in the Charity Golf Day.

Keen golfers are being given an opportunity to play one of the region’s best courses and help raise money for a worthy cause.

Cleveland Fire Brigade is inviting organisations and individuals to take part in their Annual Charity Golf Day at the prestigious Wynyard Golf Club on Tuesday 8 September.

Proceeds from the event will go to The Fire Fighters Charity which supports serving and former fire service personnel and their families during their times of need.

Golfers will compete in teams of four at the 18-hole Wellington Course which played host to the Seve Trophy in 2005. Teams will tee-off from noon.

Organisations can enter a team of four while individuals entering will be allocated a team. The day will start with golfers receiving coffee and a breakfast roll on arrival and after their round of golf a presentation dinner will take place in the clubhouse. There will be top prizes for the winning teams.

Ian Hayton, Chief Fire Officer for Cleveland Fire Brigade, said: “The Annual Charity Golf Day is always a very enjoyable event and a great way to raise much-needed funds for a very worthwhile cause.

“Over the years The Fire Fighters Charity has helped many firefighters to improve their quality of life following accidents and injuries and has been a lifeline to thousands of people.

“We are very grateful to Wynyard Golf Club for making available the excellent Wellington Course which is a challenging test for any golfer. I really do hope that local businesses, organisations and individuals come forward to support the event to help us raise as much money as possible.”

Anyone interested in taking part is urged to get in touch straightaway. Entry is £320 per team of four or £80 for an individual. This includes green fees, coffee, a breakfast roll and dinner.
