ALBION fans are gearing up for the seventh annual ‘Stephen Hayden Charity Golf Day’ – in aid of Cure Leukaemia.
The event, sponsored by BMW Rybrook, is being staged at Wharton Park Golf & Country Club, Longbank, Bewdley on Friday, May 17.
Stephen, a lifelong Albion fan, passed away in August 2006, aged 26, after a brave battle with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia and a golf day is held each year in his memory to raise funds for Cure Leukaemia.
In total, more than £30,000 has been collected for the charity, which is based at QE Hospital, Birmingham, where Stephen was treated.
Stephen’s Dad, Roy, who runs the Kidderminster branch of the West Bromwich Albion Supporters’ Club, said: “We’re delighted with the support we have received and the amount of money we have been able to raise over the past five years.
“There’s still plenty of time for individuals, or teams, to enter our latest golf day, which promises to be another great social occasion for golfers of all abilities, who will be helping to raise much-needed funds for a charity that is close to our hearts.”
Tickets cost £60 per player or £240 for teams of four.
Registration begins at 10.30am and the cost includes a full English breakfast, 18 holes of golf and a three-course dinner and entertainment, which will include a charity auction and raffle.
For non-players, the three-course dinner will cost £27.50 per person.
The Stableford event, played to a ¾ handicap, will also feature mini-competitions like beat the pro and nearest the pin.
And a brand new BMW 1 Series will be up for grabs thanks to a hole-in-one competition, sponsored by Rybrook BMW, Worcester.
