The countdown to the 2021 Lifetime-sponsored Barnsley Hospice Golf Day is now well and truly on.
The popular charity event, which is again being held at Silkstone Golf Club on Friday, May 14th, is a sell-out.
As well as again being the main sponsor, Lifetime has also put forward a team, which will be led by directors Ian Dickinson and William Bottomley.
The Barnsley Hospice golf day has been held for over 20 years and raises around £5,000 a time for patient care.
The current cup holders are a team from the Alhambra Centre in Barnsley.
Simon Atkinson, corporate fundraiser at Barnsley Hospice, said: “We are thrilled that the golf day is returning again this year – with strict adherence to COVID-19 guidelines of course. Many of us have missed outdoor sport and being with colleagues and friends, so this is the perfect opportunity to enjoy both on a beautiful course whilst raising money to support patient care.
“This year, we particularly hope it will help teams who have been working remotely and teams who’ve been through tough lockdown experiences to come together, get outdoors and boost morale as well as raise vital funds for the hospice.
“And once again it is a sell-out. Last year’s winners The Alhambra Shopping Centre are back to defend their crown. They along with the other 20 teams will be doing their best to get their names engraved on that trophy once more. I’m sure the Lifetime team will be trying their best to get their hands back on the trophy too!”
- Friday’s event features a shotgun start at 12 noon, with teams teeing off at different holes around the Silkstone course.
