If you love tee-ing off; make sure you take part in Autism Support Crawley’s golf day on Saturday 12th September at Tilgate Forest Golf Centre for a day of golf, bacon rolls and fundraising!
This is the third annual golf day, held by the group, where all money raised will help them to support their five hundred plus local members, who are the parents and carers of children and young people on the autistic spectrum.
“Last year, we raised £1961 which was more than double the total from the year before!” Autism Support Crawley’s Maria Cook (formally known as Box), says. “We were overwhelmed when we found out. We have used the funds to continue to run our evening meetings for our parent/carers, organised social events for them as well, such as a post-Christmas meal at the Toby Carvery and a trip to see Autism’s Got Talent in London, a wonderful event celebrating people with Autism organised by our group Patron, Anna Kennedy OBE. “We also hired out the Stadium Suite of Crawley Town Football Club to host a public event with guest speaker Dean Beadle, who proved to be very popular.”
Tee off will be at 11am, with bacon rolls and tea/coffee included in the price of a day’s play (£30.00). Trophy presentations and evening entertainment, including a raffle and live music from Brown Bread, will then be held at The White Knight, Worth Road, Pound Hill from 7:30pm – where all are invited to join.
“The whole day is non-stop fun, from start to finish and very family orientated,” Maria continues. “Everyone is welcome to come and support a fantastic voluntary organisation in the evening. It would be great to see as many people as possible and to help us continue to raise such important awareness and ongoing support for so many families locally.”
