Some of the biggest names in sport and show business worldwide will participate in Europe's premier celebrity golf tournament, the Shell Howard Keel NSPCC Golf Classic, which is being held at the Mere Golf and County Club in Cheshire, on 12 September 1999.

Shell UK is delighted to announce its continued involvement in the tournament which for years has attracted a large crowd of golf fans and celebrity spotters from all over the UK who have helped raise more than £500,000 for the NSPCC. This year Shell, though the tournament, will be donating a further £50,000 to the NSPCC.

There will be 36 teams participating in the tournament, all captained by celebrities, including Johnny Mathis, Robert Powell, Jasper Carrott, Kevin Whately, Dennis Waterman and Howard Keel himself.

Howard Keel said: "This really is a very special tournament for me. It is great to see so many people, both celebrity players and the public, coming to have a fun day. This will be my 13th year at the event which always seems to provide great entertainment at the same time as raising money for the NSPCC."

Spectator entry to the event at the Mere Golf & County Club, Mere, Knutsford, Cheshire costs just £5 per adult (which includes an official tournament programme) with children under 14 admitted free. The first teams will tee of at 8.45am with playing continuing until around 6.30pm.
