Golfers across the county are being invited to join in a charity golf day being run by Silverstone Golf Club in support of local charity Northamptonshire Association for the Blind (NAB).

The club’s annual charity day is dedicated this year to raising much-needed funds for NAB, a local and independent charity supporting people with sight loss.

Silverstone Golf Club Captain David Makepeace said: “The wide-ranging services provided by the charity have deeply impressed the members at Silverstone. For local people experiencing sight loss, NAB is their main point of contact and support, helping them with advice, information, support and equipment.

“They run regular social and support groups, operate drop-in Sight Centres in Northampton and Kettering as well as a busy Mobile Sight Centre and offer a home visiting service. We are keen to support the county based charity and hope that our Golf Day will generate funds to help sustain the brilliant work they do.”

The charity day is set for Friday March 20 at Silverstone Golf Club and will consist of an 18-hole four-ball team competition. Early sustenance is provided by pre-match bacon butties and coffee, and the golf is followed by a two-course meal, presentation of prizes and an Auction and Raffle. Team entry forms and competition details are available from the club’s pro-shop (01280 850005) or by visiting

The club would also be grateful to hear of any organisation or individuals wishing to sponsor a hole with a contribution of £100, or to provide prizes for the auction or raffle. Mr Makepeace can be contacted on 07534 944184 or by email
