Golf Clubs: Play for a day. Change lives forever!
January 23, 2012
Sign up to the Macmillan Cancer Support Silverspoons Golf Competition and help change the lives of people living with cancer.
The men and lady members at your club can raise vital, life-changing funds simply by playing a round of golf.
More people than ever are living with cancer in the UK. By 2030 we predict four million will be living with the illness. Macmillan's aim is to provide each one of them with the support they need, so you’ll appreciate that they need your help more than ever.
In 2011 more than 700 golf clubs across the country teed off for Macmillan and raised over £55,000.

By taking part in the Silverspoons Golf Competition in 2012 you could help to raise money that will pay for a Macmillan nurse, helping people living with cancer to receive essential medical, practical and emotional support.
It’s really easy to take part, just follow the steps below to get started:
• Encourage as many members as possible to take part. It’s a chance to get the Ladies’ and Men’s sections of your club involved.
• Choose any day up to 31 October 2012 as your competition day and put up a poster on your club noticeboard so everyone knows about it. Why not make it a special competition day?
• Register to take part now.
• Decide on an entry fee for the competition - this money can form the basis of the donation to Macmillan.
• Now all you have to do is play. The competition should be played over 18 holes in Stableford or Stroke Play format with a full handicap allowance. It can be combined with any medal, Stableford or Stoke Play round.
•Remember to keep your results card in a safe place so you can fill in the results after everyone’s played.
• Send in your club’s donation and as soon as we’ve received it, we’ll send a silver spoon which can be awarded to your competition winner.
Full details, registration, a poster, some guidelines, a results card and further ideas for raising money can all be found at the Silverspoons page of the Macmillan Cancer Support website.
