North east children’s charity to hold annual fundraising golf day

Local children’s charity Befriend a Child are inviting teams of four to join them at Deeside Golf Club on Thursday, August 25 for a day of golf at the fantastic members only club.

The day will commence with an opportunity to meet fellow teams over morning rolls and refreshments.

The teams will play 18 holes nestled on the banks of the River Dee at one of the best inland courses in Scotland, the day will then end with a delicious BBQ and a prize giving.

Katie Kyle Head of fundraising and Marketing, Befriend a Child, said: “We’re so excited to have our annual golf event back in the calendar for 2022.

“It’s the first time we have held the event at Deeside Golf Club and it really is the perfect venue for a day of golfing and fundraising, all possible because of our wonderful sponsors, CNR International.”

The day is an opportunity for colleagues or friends to come together to play 18 holes on this magnificent course.

Teams can take part in games such as longest drive, nearest the pin and a hole in one competition.

Businesses also have the opportunity to sponsor a hole on the course, their branding appearing on one of the 18 holes for all players to view.

In addition, there is a Birdie sponsorship package which includes more promotional opportunities.
