Shane Lowry signed flag up for grabs at Corporate Golf Day

A golf flag from Royal Portrush Open, signed by Shane Lowry, Tommy Fleetwood and Tony Finau is up for auction at the prestigious Cancer Focus Northern Ireland Corporate Golf Day.

Along with this sought-after collector’s item, whoever gets a hole in one on the 12th tee will win a brand new Harley Davidson motorbike.

Cancer Focus NI is inviting golfers to tee-off at the event at Malone Golf Club, Belfast, on Thursday August 29, which celebrates the charity’s 50th birthday.

Hosted by TV sports presenter Stephen Watson, registration gets underway at 12.30pm with a shotgun start at 2pm. The cost is £125 per player or £500 for a four ball.

Stephen will later regale the audience with tales of the Open at the dinner in the elegant clubhouse, followed by evening entertainment.

Proceeds from the day will go towards the vital work of Cancer Focus NI, supporting local cancer patients and their families.

Rosie Forsythe, corporate fundraising manager, Cancer Focus NI, said: “We welcome businesses from all over Northern Ireland to join us for this fabulous day out for an excellent cause. Not only will you have the chance to play on the fabulous Malone course, which has stunning views over a lake and mature trees, it’s also a unique chance to network in a relaxed and friendly environment.

“This presents an ideal opportunity to invite along your customers and business associates or treat your staff to a team-building day out. If you’re really lucky, you could go home with a fantastic souvenir from the Open or a brand new Harley.

“The money raised will help us continue to provide our vital services for cancer patients and their families all over Northern Ireland.”

Services provided by Cancer Focus NI include a family support for children and young people when a mum or dad has cancer, counselling, a specialist bra-fitting service for women who’ve had breast cancer, and art and writing therapies.

The charity also carries out important cancer prevention work in schools and colleges all over Northern Ireland, and brings health information and stop smoking clinics to community venues and workplaces. Cancer Focus NI also funds potentially life-saving research at Queen’s University Belfast and campaigns for better health policies for the future.
