Golfers and golf fans are invited to join Young Barnet Foundation on Wednesday, 4th September 2024, for a Charity Golf Day at the prestigious Seve Ballesteros-designed Shire London in Barnet. 

The event will support disadvantaged children and young people across Barnet, merging a passion for golf with community support.

Attendees are promised a day filled with sport, fun and community spirit.

All profits will be channelled through Young Barnet Foundation’s Space2Grow Children & Young People’s Fund, aiding over 180 organisations that support local youth and families. 

Janet Matthewson, CEO of Young Barnet Foundation said, “This is a chance to make a difference in your own backyard. Remember, it takes a village to raise a child, or in our case a borough. Help us, help disadvantaged children across Barnet have access to services and opportunities for them to thrive.”

Places are available for individuals and teams, as are sponsorship options and donations for auctions and prize draws.
