Enjoy a round for charity

PLACES are still available for the 25th Morpeth Golf Day.

The annual event is organised by the Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade as a fund-raising venture, with about 30 teams taking to the course each year.

As well as a round of golf, the day offers prizes worth a total of around £3,000 to play for, a two-course dinner and free food and alcohol on the course.

This year, Morpeth Golf Club has waived its fee for use of the course to help the chamber after its funds were cleared out in a suspected theft, while Piramal is the main sponsor.

The event takes place on Friday, July 6, and entry costs £235 for a team of four.

So far, 26 teams have signed up.

Anyone interested in entering a team should contact organiser Geoff Proudlock on 01665 602271 or 01670 512668. Alternatively, email grproudlock@hotmail.co.uk
