TEAM places are still available for a charity golf tournament in aid of Rotherham Hospice.

The fifth annual Friends of Yellowman Charity Golf Day takes place at College Pines Golf Club in Worksop on May 12.

The fundraising group was formed by relatives and pals of David Middleton — known as Yellowman because of the bright jumper he wore at Sheffield United matches.

David stayed at the hospice after being diagnosed with gallbladder cancer. He died at home in North Anston in August 2014, aged 50.

The friends group’s golf days have raised £17,000. Last year’s brought in £7,000 towards landscaping the memorial gardens where the Tree of Life sculpture stands.

Golf day organiser Brian Robbins said: “Our aim is to completely cover the cost of the design and landscaping of the memorial garden and provide for its upkeep. If funds permit, we will continue to support the hospice on other projects.”

This year’s event costs £160 per team and includes pre-tee off coffee and post-tournament meal. Team and individual hold prizes have been donated by sponsors and auction memorabilia has been provided by golf aces Lee Westwood and Matthew Fitzpatrick.

Places must be taken up by April 18. For more information and to sign up, contact Brian on brian@rapidmail.uk.com or 07918 679697.
