FENLAND Council is appealing for more than 20 volunteers to come forward and help make its annual Disability Golf Day at the Prior Golf Centre, Wimblington, a huge success on Friday, July 6 (9am-4pm).
Volunteers are urgently needed to help those with disabilities to get around the course.
It is always a fantastic day out and people from all walks of life have traditionally stepped in to help get people round the course.
The Golf Day raises awareness of the sporting opportunities and activities available to disabled people around Fenland.
The day also acts as a focus for improving sporting provision for disabled people and for introducing new activities. While many disabled people love to play a round of golf, there are this year a number of other sporting activities available, including a climbing wall, target football, archery and tri-golf (for golfing beginners).
Food and drink will be available throughout the day for participants and volunteers.
Anyone wishing to volunteer for what is always a fun day out, should contact Jason Richardson, the council's sports development manager, on 01354 654321, or you can e-mail him on firstname.lastname@example.org
Councillor Steve Garratt, portfolio holder with responsibility for sport and leisure, said: "We are dedicated to helping people with disabilities to have as full access to sporting activities as possible and the Golf Day is a fantastic way of promoting what is available.
"However, to make the Golf Day run smoothly, we need volunteers so I would urge people to do themselves a favour and join in the fun for this worthwhile cause.
