Postponed: Ed Chamberlin Golf Classic

18 May

Monday 18 May 20 The Belfry on the Brabazon Course, B76 9PR £1,250 per team

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we have had to postpone Ed Chamberlin’s 2020 Golf Day in aid of WellChild until October 2020, we do hope that you will still be able to join us later in the year.

In its place however, we would like to invite you to take part in ‘#PUTTingWellChildFirst’ – an exciting and simple self-isolation golfing challenge for you, your friends, family and colleagues to take part in on social media.

As you can imagine the postponement of this event, collections, essential projects, and all other WellChild events for the foreseeable future has had a huge impact on WellChild’s income. As a charity totally reliant on voluntary fundraising support and with almost 60% of our income generated from fundraising events alone, we urgently need your help to support children with serious health needs and their families at this critical time.

Therefore, as part of our fundraising efforts we have set up a new and exciting putting challenge that we hope you will get behind. Putting WellChild First is a social media driven challenge and the rules are simple;

  1. Create and take on the most creative or longest Putt possible in your current circumstances. Decide what you will Putt into – e.g. a coffee mug/pint glass
  2. Choose your location; back garden, garage, down the stairs, or wherever works for you
  3. Film your Putt, upload it to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the #PUTTingWellChildFirst
  4. Make sure to donate to the WellChild Resilience Fund which will support our WellChild Family Tree and information service during this critical time
  5. Nominate friends by tagging them in your post – prizes to be awarded for the most creative and longest putts

The annual Ed Chamberlin golf day returns in October 2020 – hosted by our wonderful ambassador and sponsored by Sky Bet.

This event will take place at The Belfry on the Brabazon Course. The Belfry is synonymous with golf and has hosted the Ryder Cup four times – more than any other venue in the world. Teams will be joined on the day by one of a number of sports and media personalities. A late breakfast will be followed by 18 holes of golf, with prize giving and dinner with special guests to follow in the clubhouse.

Teams will consist of three players plus a guest celebrity player to be allocated on the day. Teams will be sold on a first-come first-served basis. This is always a sell out event so to secure your team please fill in the below form or contact Jessie in the events team on events@wellchild.org.uk or by calling 01242 530007

Take a look at the pictures from last year’s event here, sporting personalities such as Jamie Redknapp, AP McCoy and Matt Le Tissier have all attended the event before.
