Tee up for charity

IF YOU enjoy a game of golf, and are looking to help vulnerable women in the local community, make sure that you pencil this is on your calendar.

The Lennox Head Lions Club will be hosting the John Mitchell Annual Charity Golf Day on Sunday, August 26 with an 11.30am tee off.

The annual event is designed to help support a local charity organisation continue their services, and the beneficiary for this year's event is Hope Haven Women's Refuge.

Hope Haven receives no government funding and is the only women's and children's refuge in Ballina.

Hope Haven, with the help of the ADRA Opshop also provides assistance to women and families with basic household needs when leaving the refuge to live in their own accommodation.

Held at Ballina Golf Course, the charity golf day event will be a four person Ambrose competition, with loads of prizes to be won.

Lennox Head Lion's Club president Derek Audus said that even if you didn't have a team, you can still enter.

"We'll pair you up with someone and have a really fantastic day out,” he said.

Mr Audus said that the event wouldn't be possible without the generosity of their major sponsors, who include Specsavers Optometrists Ballina, Barbeque Galore Lismore and Palm Lakes Resort Ballina.

Enter at Ballina Golf Club Pro Shop and registration costs $45 per player, which includes a barbecue lunch provided by the Lions Club.
