A charity which enriches the lives of people with physical disabilities is arranging a golf day in Banbury to raise funds.

ENRYCH Oxfordshire is organising the event at Cherwell Edge Golf Club in Chacombe on Tuesday, September 2.

The charity enables people to pursue a hobby or interest with the support of a trained volunteer.

Elaine Gilbert, volunteer trustee and fundraiser, said:“With our dedicated trained volunteers we enable people with physical disabilities to take part in leisure activities that able bodied people take for granted.

“Having a physical disability can be an isolating experience and often leads to loneliness and depression.

“We aim to improve the lives of those with physical disabilities by taking them out and helping them to become involved in their local community.”

The golf day is sponsored by Glazpart Ltd, Michael Jones Jeweller, Mike Swann Solutions and Hampton’s International as well as many other tee and green sponsors.

There will be about 25 teams playing on the day and those interested can enter a team of four for £160, which includes a bacon roll on arrival, all day buffet and an evening auction.

Auction prizes include a tour for four people to visit Aston Martin Lagonda in Gaydon and Prodrive in Banbury, donated by David Richards, a crate of House of Commons Whisky donated by Banbury MP Sir Tony Baldry, a day at Newbury Racecourse, a Pin Flag signed by American professional golfer Phil Mickelson and a signed Arsenal first team photo.

To enter a team or sponsor the event, contact Elaine Gilbert on 07801 482408 or elaine.golfday@enrych.org.uk
