An estate agents in Epsom is hosting a charity golf day in support of Surrey children’s hospice Shooting Star Chase.

Leaders has organised the event, for the second year running, to raise funds for the company’s charity partner Together for Short Lives, which supports Shooting Star Chase and other children’s hospices across the UK.

The golf day takes place on Friday 8th July at Banstead Downs Golf Course in Sutton. Teams of four will take part in the competition and the best two scores using the Stableford format will count towards the final standings.

After completing 18 holes of Banstead Downs, golfers will able to enjoy a barbecue. This will be followed by a prize-giving ceremony and a live rock band will play into the night.

Paul Milsom, area sales manager at Leaders, says: “Our golf day was a great success last year and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who took part. We once again look forward to welcoming golfers from across Surrey and south London. In addition to the main contest, there will be putting, longest drive and nearest the pin competitions.

“The aim is to host a fun-packed day that golfers of all abilities will enjoy. Banstead Downs is a fantastic course in great condition and the perfect place for players to put their game to the test. We also have evening entertainment lined up in the clubhouse so golfers can make a night of it.

“Most importantly, we hope to raise as much money as possible for Together for Short Lives and Shooting Star Chase. All of us at Leaders have been overwhelmingly touched to learn of the work the hospice does in caring for children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, and the incredible support they offer families when they need it most.”

Together for Short Lives supports all 54 children’s hospices in the UK. It was first named by Leaders as its Charity of the Year in 2015 and the company raised a total of £45,000 last year. Staff are hoping to raise a further £50,000 this year.
