Warwickshire businesses hope for a hole in one for charity

Leamington Editorial 26th Apr, 2024   0

GENEROUS businesses across Warwickshire have come up with the par-fect way to bank cash for charity.

The Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce will be holding its annual President’s Golf Day at Whitefield’s Golf Course in Rugby on Friday June 21 to raise vital funds for The Myton Hospices.

The event, which is back for a third year, will be played in a pairs format and to handicap, meaning seasoned golfers can compete fairly alongside newcomers.

And for the first time this year, the top two pairs in the tournament will go onto compete in a national final against the best players from other Chamber regions who qualify from their own charity tournaments.

The region which goes onto win the national final will then host the subsequent year’s national tournament.

Corin Crane, chief executive of the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce, said: “We’d encourage golfers both novice and expert to come along, as handicaps will be enforced – and there will be a delicious barbecue to round things off too.”

Myton Hospices spokesman Chris Willmott thanked the Chamber, its sponsors and the Draycote Hotel for organising the event.

He added: “Eighty per cent of our funding comes from donations, with Myton having to raise a staggering £12.5million this year to continue to provide our services free of charge, so events like this really make a massive difference to our ability to provide end-of-life care to our patients, from diagnosis to death.”
