Time to tee off for Wiltshire Air Ambulance

By Anita Jaynes on May 05, 2014

Businesses and golfers alike are being invited to tee-off for charity at a golf day being organised by Wiltshire Air Ambulance at Cumberwell Park, Bradford on Avon on Friday 19 September 2014.

The charity is looking for teams of four people to enter the competition which is being held at one of Britain’s most prestigious courses. The cost of the day is £240 per team (£60 per person) which includes morning refreshments, 18 holes played Stableford format on the four star green, coaching by a PGA professional, a three-course dinner and evening entertainment by the Will Blake Band as well as a fundraising raffle and auction on the night. Additional non-playing guests are also welcome to attend in the evening as part of a separate package costing £25 per person.

“Our golf day promises to be very enjoyable event with the opportunity to play on the Cumberwell Park course which has been awarded four stars in Golf World’s top courses in Britain. It’s an ideal networking opportunity for businesses as well as golfers who would like to play on this prestigious course whilst helping to raise much-needed funds for a life-saving local charity at the same time. As there is a maximum of 25 teams, I would urge people to enter as soon as possible to avoid disappointment,” said Claire Kelly, Head of Events & Charity Services for Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

John Jacobs, Head PGA professional at Cumberwell Park and Golf Monthly’s Top 25 UK Coach and England Boys’ coach, added: “I’m so pleased that the charity is holding a fundraiser at Cumberwell. I have seen first-hand how the air ambulance makes a difference when players are taken seriously ill on the golf course. It would be impossible for a land ambulance to get to anyone needing help. I hope that the day goes well and we have many teams supporting Wiltshire Air Ambulance and enjoying our course at Cumberwell”
