Worst Christmas Jumper golf day for Suffolk Carers appeal


Golfers tee-up in ‘worst’ Christmas jumpers to raise funds for £525,000 mobile family Carers unit

Thorpeness Hotel and Golf Club is hosting a ‘Worst Christmas Jumper’ charity golf day this month in aid of Suffolk Family Carers ‘Eight Days a Week Appeal’ run in partnership with BBC Suffolk.

The charity, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, is aiming to raise £525,000 to buy a mobile family carers unit which will tour the county, reaching out to isolated families in remote communities and providing a focal point to support carers.

The appeal aims to secure funding to keep the unit on the road for two years and provide health and well-being activities, as well as trained staff to listen and support carers in need of respite.

Paul Clouting, hotel director at Thorpeness Hotel and Golf Club, said: “Golfers are always being teased for wearing argyle or diamond patterned sweaters and bright trousers. This is one occasion when sartorial swingers can make a real difference to the lives of people who spend every single day caring for others in need.

We’d like to invite all golfers to throw on their worst possible Christmas jumper, turn out and tee-off for a great cause.”

The ‘Worst Christmas Jumper’ Golf Day takes place on December 20th at Thorpeness Hotel and Golf Club, Suffolk.

The competition is a team Stableford event with prizes for the top three finishers and costs £20 per team to enter.

Thorpeness Hotel and Golf Club is donating the entry fees and any money raised on the day through bucket collections to the appeal.

Tee times are available from 8am but afternoon tee-times are limited by shorter daylight hours.

Golfers can book by calling Thorpeness Golf Club on 01728 454926, or emailing:

Festive foods will be served at the halfway house on the course and the hotel’s entire staff will also be wearing Christmas Jumpers and donating £2 each to the appeal.
