Golfers are being urged to not miss out on the chance to top the leaderboard at the 2015 Lord Mayor’s annual charity Golf Day.



Following a successful inaugural tournament in 2014, participants will once again be able to test their mettle as part of a four-person team against rival line-ups at the 18-hole competition, which is set to be held on Wike Ridge at Leeds Golf Centre on Thursday 30 April 2015.



As part of the £350 entry fee per team of four, those taking part will not only be treated to lunch, dinner and goodie bag prizes, they can also test their golfing abilities in a series of fun and testing challenges.



Held in support of the Lord Mayor of Leeds Councillor David Congreve’s chosen charity, the Leeds Children’s Hospital Appeal, and the Leeds Children’s Charity, last year’s event was a sell-out success, and anyone wishing to be involved in the 2015 tournament, are being urged to book their place as soon as possible to avoid potential disappointment.



For further details around the event, please contact by email: lordmayorsoffice@leeds.gov.uk or telephone: 0113 2474194.



Anyone wishing to contribute to the appeal can do so in the following ways: By text: ‘LMCA01’ to 70070, or online at www.justgiving.com/lmca



The Lord Mayor of Leeds, Councillor David Congreve said:



"We are delighted to be hosting the 2015 Lord Mayor’s charity Golf Day at Wike Ridge Championship Golf Course, which last year was a fantastic success despite the wet weather!



"This is a brilliant opportunity for keen golfers of all abilities to take part in what is a really fun event as a member of a four-person team against rival line-ups over 18 testing holes.



"With a lovely lunch, dinner and goodie bags also included on the day along with a number of individual competitions this really is something not to be missed, especially when all proceeds from the competition will be given to two fantastic charities."
