Pontardawe Golf Club in South Wales are holding their annual charity Golf Day for leading childcare charity NCH Action for Children on Thursday 30th September. Now in its 11th year, the event raises funds for some of the UK's most vulnerable children.

Since the event started in 1988 players have raised over £22,000 and it is hoped that this year will prove a record breaker. The winning team get their names inscribed on the "Woosnam Club Trophy" which is proudly displayed all year round at the club house. NCH Action for Children would be only too happy if any other golf clubs around the UK wanted to take them on as their charity of the year, and would provide all the support needed. Any golf club captains can contact the NCH media office on 0171 704 7105.

Pontardawe in the Swansea Valley falls in between the glorious Gower Peninsula, an area designated of "outstanding natural beauty" with its unspoilt beaches and the contrasting rugged peaks of the Brecon Beacons National Park. So if you fancy a golfing challenge, some breathtaking scenery and at the same time help raise as much needed money for children in need get in touch on 0345 626579. There are a limited number of tee off times starting at 11.30am, so please make contact soon. The competition uses a Fourball Betterball Stableford format, played off back boxes and the maximum handicap is 18.
