Players are still needed for the annual Relate golf tournament later this month.

The annual fuundraiser will take place on July 24 at Eastbourne Downs Golf Club.

Tournament organiser Jackie Florey said, “We have been holding our popular tournament for many years now.

“It’s a really fun day on a beautiful course with absolutely fantastic views. The day includes a two-course meal and lots of prizes are up for grabs.”

The golfers will be raising money for Relate, a charity which provides counselling.

Jo Carden, from Relate, said, “We are a Sussex based charity with counsellors who work in two locations in Eastbourne.

“Our counsellors do vital, often unseen, work with families, single people and couples, straight or LGBT.

“We help with keeping relationships healthy but we are also there when things go wrong, or where people are having to face new pressures on their relationships like illness, money problems, becoming a parent or carer or where they and their families are facing the end of their relationship.”

The golf day will begin with a shot gun start at 9am and tee off at 9.30. The fee is £42 per person. Individuals or teams are welcome.
