KEEN golfers got the chance to tee-off in lovely sunshine on Saturday when they played all in the name of charity at Addlethorpe Golf Club.

The competition involved blind pairs over nine holes, the longest drive, nearest the pin and full handicap, with a maximum of 18.

“It was a really good day and the weather was great. Lots of people came, including visitors from Nottingham,” said Chris Reynolds for the club.

There was also a raffle, a barbecue, music and entertainment provided by a Roy Chubby Brown look-a-like, a bouncy castle and a carboot with craft stalls. The whole event managed to raise £450 which will go towards the RNLI.

“I am a local lad and used to have businesses near to the RNLI station. I saw how many times they go out during the season and what they give up to provide the service they do, so I was more than happy to support Alan Corah who fund-raises for the charity,” added Chris.

Addlethorpe Golf Club is hoping to run another big and better fund-raising event for the RNLI with the date set to be confirmed, if you have an act, stall or something you’d like to have there on the day, call Chris on 01754 871020.

There will also be a Jam Night tomorrow evening (Thursday, October 4) at the club with singers and entertainment.
