BUDDING golfers are invited to tee off for a good cause.
Charity Edward’s Trust – which offers support for bereaved parents, children and carers – is set to hold its annual Golf Day at The Warwickshire Golf and Country Club in Leek Wootton on Monday July 8.
The event will mark the charity’s 30th anniversary, and will see supporters play 18 holes on a championship course. It will also include breakfast, two course meal and presentation, an auction and raffle.
Richard Page began organising the event to support the charity after it helped him following the death of his daughter Natalie.
He said: “I know what it’s like to be bereaved. I know the feeling of pain and isolation.
“When my daughter died aged 22 it was like part of me was ripped out. I was lost, angry and confused. I thought I’d never stop the tears. I couldn’t work and parts of me just shut down. Edward’s Trust helped me, helped my family and gave me the tools to forge a new life.
“I will always be grateful and through this Golf Day I can help raise the funds to support other people and families through their darkest moments.”
Teams of four can enter from £240.
