Gofal Charity Golf Day: Raising funds for people experiencing mental ill health in Wales
June 12, 2012

Business and golf enthusiasts will come together on July 19th at the Vale Resort (Vale of Glamorgan) to take part in a charity golf day that will raise vital funds for people experiencing mental ill health in Wales.

In partnership with the Vale Resort, leading mental health and wellbeing charity Gofal will host a charity golf day to raise awareness of mental ill health in Wales. The day will consist of 18 holes on the magnificent Wales National Course and will encourage business networking between players. All the money raised by the players taking part will go towards supporting the 2000 people that Gofal provides services to each year.

Gofal’s Fundraising Manager, Trystan Jones, commented: “Gofal is pleased to team-up with one of Wales’ most prestigious golf resorts for this event. An event like this is a great way for business people to network whilst raising funds for an excellent cause. The fact that the players will be playing amid 650 acres of beautiful Welsh countryside that has hosted PGA tournaments will make the event that extra bit special.”
