[A] final call for teams of four to take part in this year’s Rosemere Cancer Foundation Celebrity-AM Charity Golf Day at Windermere Golf Club on Thursday, July 13th is being made by organisers.
The event was held for the first time last year when it raised £6,000 for the charity – a success that organisers are hoping to replicate. This year’s tournament, which is again being sponsored by Ambleside’s Salutation Hotel, will follow a similar format with registration and snacks at 10-30 am, tee-off from 11 am to 3 pm, with dinner and entertainment from approximately 7-30 pm. MC for the evening is folk singer and comedian Norman Prince, the former frontman of the Houghton Weavers.
This year though team’s will have the option of including a guest celebrity in their line-up if preferred. Among the celebrities, who have so far signed up to take part, are BBC TV’s North West Tonight reporter Martin Henfield, singer Stephen Bayliss, former Scotland international and Bolton Wanderers footballer John McGinlay and comedian Ged Stone.
The cost of entry per team is £200 inclusive of dinner with additional dinner guests welcome at £25 per head. To enter, contact Mr David Smith, proprietor of Windermere’s Rayrigg Motors, on 07974 143070 to request an entry form.
All proceeds from the competition will go to Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s 20 Years Anniversary Appeal. It has a £1.5 million target for a trio of ground-breaking projects celebrating the 20th anniversary of the opening of Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust’s Rosemere Cancer Centre at the Royal Preston Hospital, which is South Cumbria and Lancashire’s local specialist cancer treatment centre, providing all local radiotherapy among other care.
