Golf day to help dementia sufferers

SOUTH Yorkshire charity Lost Chord is teeing off with a charity golf day at one of the region’s most famous championship courses.

The Rotherham-based organisation, which provides interactive musical experiences for dementia sufferers in care homes and day centres across the county, will host a Golf Day at Lindrick Golf Club - still celebrated as the home of the 1957 Ryder Cup - on June 25.

A registration fee of just £240 per team of four - men, women or mixed - will include a great sporting opportunity as well as hot bacon rolls, refreshments, a meal and prizes.

“We are a little known charity but pack a powerful punch with the vulnerable people who suffer from this devastating disease,” said Lost Chord fundraising and marketing manager Tina Harrison.

“We are really hoping to touch the hearts of local golfers and ask them to think about their elderly relatives and, with this in mind, enter a team in our first golfing event.

“Lost Chord needs to raise in excess £200,000 annually to maintain its programme of concerts and we have a significant waiting list. Without any statutory funding we rely solely on grants and private donations so we need all the help we can get to continue this important work with the elderly.”
