The Walton Centre Charity is delighted to hold its charity golf day at Formby Golf Club today, Thursday 19 May, after a two-year absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hosted by Liverpool FC legend and Charity patron, David Fairclough, the event is raising money for the Home from Home relatives’ accommodation at The Walton Centre, where relatives can stay after a patient has been admitted for urgent treatment.

We are welcoming 22 teams to the event, with players including former Reds stars Phil Neal, Alan Kennedy and Neil Mellor, former British Olympian high jumper, Steve Smith, and actor David Morrisey.

Madeleine Fletcher, Head of Fundraising, said it was amazing to be back for the first time since 2019.

“Our annual golf day is a great event and we were so disappointed to cancel it in 2020 and 2021, but we’re really pleased to be back this year. Thank you to Formby Golf Club who always put on a fantastic day for us, and our key supporters Investec, our sponsor this year, Porsche Centre Chester, A&B Engineering, Odendaal Diamonds, and Lynx Golf.”

As well as the Stableford competition, players will be competing for the longest drive, a Charity Challenge to win a pair of diamond earrings, and a brand-new Porsche if they score a hole-in-one.
