Ipswich Building Society has announced its annual charity golf day will be raising funds for the Cancer Campaign in Suffolk and Emmaus Ipswich.

Taking place on Monday October 6 from 11.30am at the Gainsborough Course, Stoke by Nayland Golf Club, the Society is calling on the region’s players to club together and enter as a team or go it alone and join in the day’s events.

Entry prices are £325 for a team of four, which includes the opportunity to display a company banner at the course, while individual players are welcome at £75 per person and will be included in the a team with other individual players. The day ends with a tasty roast, prize giving and a raffle in aid of the chosen charities.

Michelle Monck, general manager marketing, Ipswich Building Society, said: “Our charity Golf Day is an opportunity for local business representatives to come together and show off their handicap, at the same time raising money for two important charities in our region.

“We are also keen to hear from companies to offer raffle prizes. Tickets for the raffle will be sold on the day at the event at £10 per strip, again with funds raised going directly to the charities. Companies can also sponsor a hole for £100 and we’ll display their company banner.”

Cancer Campaign in Suffolk is funded entirely by voluntary donations and helps people before, after and during a cancer diagnosis.

The charity funds the John Le Vay Cancer Information Centre in Ipswich Hospital’s oncology department which provides complementary therapies and vital support services spanning financial, emotional and dietary care to people with cancer.
