Two Pools players have given their support to a fundraising event for a charity that saves lives of the coast of Hartlepool and East Durham.
Hartlepool United players Harry Worley and Jake Gray called into Hartlepool RNLI Lifeboat Station to give their backing to this years Hartlepool RNLI golf day which is to be held at Seaton Carew Golf Club which will be held in May.
It is the 14th year that the event has been held to raise cash for the RNLI in the town.
Mark Simpson, media manager at Hartlepool United, said: “We get so much support from the town so it’s nice to be able to promote and support worthy causes such as the RNLI in the town and region.”
Now volunteers from Hartlepool RNLI are looking for teams to compete in the 14th Hartlepool RNLI golf day to be held at Seaton Carew Golf Club on Bank Holiday Monday, May 30.
The charity is calling for people to back the fundraisers and help boost the vital service.
Hartlepool RNLI volunteer Tom Price said: “This is our 14th year and the competition is one that is challenging but everyone enjoys the day and people come from right across the North East to support the RNLI.”
Malcolm Wallis, Hartlepool RNLI volunteer treasurer said: “Without fundraising events like this our volunteer crew members wouldn’t be able to train and get the best equipment to help save lives at sea.”
The competition is 18 holes Stableford for three-person teams with the best two scores to count at each hole.
There will also be a nearest the pin and longest drive competition.
The cost is £60 per team which includes the golf and a hot meal and anyone interested in playing or donating a prize either for the golf or the raffle should ring Malcolm Wallis on 07538 006694 or Allison Malham at Seaton Carew Golf Club on 01429 266249 to book a tee off time.
The tee is booked between 10am and 2pm.
