Appeal for fundraisers to tee off at charity golf day

By Liam Keen | Wolverhampton | News | Published:

Whether you’re headed for the bunker or getting the rub of the green, one golf club is inviting golfing enthusiasts to an event raising money for a charity helping vulnerable people in the region – and only a few spaces remain.

Martin Wainwright from Perton Park Golf Club, Jade Secker from The Haven, Dicky Dodd from Signal 107 and Marcello Mongiovi from Trim Barber Shops, look forward to the charity golf match

The Haven is clubbing together with Perton Golf club for a charity golf tournament on Friday September 21, sponsored by TRiM barbershops and hosted by Signal 107’s Dicky Dodd

It will be raising vital funds for the charity that supports women and children who are vulnerable to domestic violence, homelessness and abuse.

The day will begin with tea and coffee and a breakfast bap before heading out onto the course for 18 holes of golf, that will also include mini competitions including beat the pro.

After the games, the club house is welcoming the teams for a three course meal, raffle and entertainment hosted by Dicky Dodd.

The group ready to tee off

Dicky said: “Over the past few years I’ve wanted to support The Haven because of the support they offer and how they really do help their clients get their lives back in safe and friendly environment.

“There are many charities around these days but The Haven is one that really needs more support and if my contribution in hosting events helps, then I will continue to support them too.”

Jade Secker, Senior Community Fundraiser at The Haven, said: “We are really looking forward to hosting our first golf day and hope that it will be the first of many in years to come.


“Every penny that is raised from the event will go towards supporting vulnerable women and children in Wolverhampton who have been affected by domestic abuse and homelessness

“We are encouraging locals to get themselves signed up as we only have a few team spaces left, and we are incredibly grateful to all those involved in making this event happen.”

Entry to the competition is £45 per person and teams must be made up of four players. People can find out more or book their place at
