The Shropshire Golf Centre, set on the outskirts of Telford, Shropshire, is to hold a charity Footgolf day in aid of the Shrewsbury Town F.C. community disability football teams.
The fun-filled day will take place on Sunday 24th April at The Shropshire Golf Centre on their resident Footgolf course, and will include a round of Footgolf, food, and a charity raffle.
Stuart Perry, General Manager at The Shropshire Golf Centre, is delighted to play host to the event:
“Supporting and working with the local community is incredibly important to us. Our Footgolf course is a great place for everyone to have fun, and we hope that the day will raise a lot of money for disabled sports teams in the local area.”
Shrewsbury Town in the Community has been a registered charity since 2009, and works across four platforms including Elderly Engagement, Disability Coaching, Futsal and Football Education, and Schools Coaching.
The event at the BGL operated venue will focus on the teams who benefit from Disability Coaching, including the DS Shrews, a team for children with Downs Syndrome, and CP Shrews for youngsters with Cerebral Palsy.
Weekly sessions are run for both teams, and rely on contributions from parents and fundraising events to keep them running.
“Charity days like these are invaluable for our disability teams.” Said Aiden Wassell, Health and Inclusion Officer at Shrewsbury Town in the Community,
“The money raised will help to buy equipment for the weekly sessions, and hopefully the event will be a fun way to raise awareness of opportunities for disabled youngsters within the local community.”
The charitable activities will begin at 10am at The Shropshire Golf Centre. For those wanting to get involved, the event will be open to players aged seven and above with an entry donation of £20 per person, and £80 per fourball.
