Council chairman's charity golf day

August 8 2017 - The chairman of East Herts Council visited Hanbury Manor Golf Club in Ware to launch his Charity Golf Day in aid of Essex & Herts Air Ambulance.

The golf day will be at Hanbury Manor on September 29 and chairman Jeff Jones is looking for teams of four to join him for what promises to be a great day of golf on a championship course.

Numbers are limited to a maximum of 20 teams of four so an early response is recommended. Options to sponsor a hole are also available.

The day starts with a welcome and breakfast followed by a Stableford 18-hole competition. Players will also be able to compete in a putting competition followed by the "19th hole" which features an opportunity to try Hanbury Manor's golf simulator with a special prize for nearest the pin. The day concludes with a gala dinner followed by a charity auction.

Jeff said: "I'm really looking forward to welcoming guests to play in my competition and enjoy a great day out at a superb venue. My event follows soon after the European Seniors Tour that Hanbury Manor is hosting so the course promises to be in tip-top condition. This is a great opportunity to play this championship course and raise funds for a very worthwhile charity. Please contact me at chairmans.office@eastherts.gov.uk for further information."

Natasha Robertson, Essex & Herts fundraising manager, said: "We are all so delighted that the chairman of East Herts Council has chosen Essex & Herts Air Ambulance as one of his charities of the year.

"Through his golf day, he is helping us to continue flying and saving lives. Every year Essex & Herts Air Ambulance are called to over 1,000 life-threatening incidents. It costs approximately £5,000 per month to keep our helicopters and Rapid Response vehicles operational.

"We rely entirely on the generosity and goodwill of people in the area to continue our life-saving work - we simply couldn't fly without them."
