FARNHAM LIONS 27th ANNUAL GOLF DAY 


Thursday 22nd August 2024 - Hindhead Golf Club


First of all may I just thank all those people who played in the Golf Day last year and helped us raise a magnificent £9,760 for The Hunter Centre. This money together with the further £22,000 that the Hindhead Captains raised will be used to make their building more energy efficient, increase day care activities, continue funding for their weekly carer support group, promote the great work they do to the community and to local businesses and finally to help release staff into the field to support those who have just been diagnosed with Dementia.

I'd also like to give special thanks to the wonderful support we received from our event sponsor Howard Taylor and the staff and members of Hindhead Golf Club

And so on to the plans for this year

The Lions Golf Day this year will be on Thursday the 22nd August and will again be held at Hindhead Golf Club. The beneficiary this year will be The Ruth Strauss Foundation. Their aims are as follows and all money raised on the golf day will be "ring fenced" to provide this invaluable support to families in Farnham and the surrounding area.


" Parents with an incurable cancer diagnosis should have access to support and guidance t talk to their children and help pepare them for the future. Our free resources help families to start that difficult conversation with their children and help prepare them for grief, death and dying. By encouraging families to maintain an open and honest dialogue, children will be able to make the most of the time left with the dying parent, without internalising questions, worries or fears".


Although our costs have gone up we have made the decision to keep the entry fees the same as last year: £125 per person for Non Hindhead Members and £75 per person for Hindhead Members. The cost covers coffee and bacon rolls before play 18 holes of golf (shot gun start in 4 balls) and a two course summer carvery with pudding.

As always there will be a small charge on the day of £25 per person for entry into all of the following wonderful competitions:-
