Raithwaite’s charity golf day

It’s time to get into the swing for the Raithwaite Hall Hotel Charity Golf Day in aid of the life-saving service provided by Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The event takes place on Thursday June 13, with the golf day followed by evening dinner and presentation.

Last year’s inaugural event raised £1,300.

Players and teams are being invited to join the special day, for which the Whitby Gazette is the media partner.

Nigel Brunt, sales and marketing director of Raithwaite Estate Yorkshire Country Retreat, said: “Join us for an excellent day of golf at the beautiful Whitby Golf Club adjacent to Raithwaite Hall with its amazing coastal views and all for a great cause.”

The main format will be a Four Ball (team) Stableford Competition with spot prizes and a team yellow ball competition. Any individuals will be teamed up with other single golfers. Accommodation team prices will be available on a first come first served basis and are subject to availability.

Places are limited and Mr Brunt expects to receive a high level of entries after last year’s success. “We would advise booking early to avoid disappointment as places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. I’ve already got nine teams signed up.”

Sponsorship opportunities are available – with all proceeds going direct to Yorkshire Air Ambulance, an independent charity providing an emergency service to 5,000,000 people across Yorkshire. It flies seven days a week, 365 days a year.

To keep providing this life-saving service the charity needs to raise £7,200 per day to keep both of Yorkshire’s Air Ambulances in the air. “The generosity that we receive is our lifeblood and without this generosity, we would not be able to provide the service that we are so proud of,” said a spokesman for the air ambulance.
