A CHARITY is calling for sponsors to support a golf fundraiser.

Adrian Berry is organising the fundraising golf event on September 15, at Ross-on-Wye Golf Club as part of his 65th birthday celebrations in aid of the HOPE Family Centre.

Berry is the father of Heidi Mulholland, HOPE Family Support Team Co-ordinator, so is aware of the impact the charity has on families.

He said: "The HOPE Family Centre provides excellent services to the families of Bromyard and the surrounding areas.

"My daughter’s role at the centre means I am very aware of its funding issues and I therefore decided to do my bit to support them and arrange the golf day.

"I would like to thank Ross-on-Wye Golf Club for hosting the event and hope for a good turn out on the day.”

HOPE is offering sponsorship packages for the following competitions: nearest the hole; longest drive; beat the professional and putting.

All proceeds will support the work HOPE do and ensure that it can continue to fund the services it provides throughout Herefordshire.

The HOPE Centre works alongside key partners in order to deliver support on a wide range of early help and intervention; open to all families, its services include: Early Years education; adult learning; multi activities for children; parenting advice; toddler groups and speech and language support.

Tee-off times will take place between 9.30am and 11.00am. The day will include breakfast on arrival and a late lunch followed by prize giving at 4.00pm.

The cost per person is £50 with club members receiving a £20 discount.
