Charity Golf Day at Heaton Moor Golf Club

Stockport Cerebral Palsy Society will again be hosting their annual fundraising event at Heaton Moor Golf Course on Friday 13th September 2019.

This will be the 26th year this brilliant event will take place and I’m proud to announce it’s Julian Waddens 7th year in sponsoring the event. This fun packed day of golf, food & drink will be full of laughs and fantastic prizes. If you are interested in making a team there are still a couple of spots available so, please get in touch.

Last year the day raised an incredible £12,000, so let’s hope this year’s event at this excellent golf club can raise even more.  

** In the UK, Cerebral Palsy affects about one in every 400 people. It can affect people from all social backgrounds and ethnic groups. It is a condition that affects muscle control and movement and is usually caused by an injury to the brain before, during or after birth.

‘A Chance to buy Art and Craft Directly from the Makers’

2019 marks our 7th annual event of this brilliant two-day, free to visit, community-led trail where local artists and artisans open their homes and studios to showcase their work to the public.

This year’s trail will be held on the weekend of 29th & 30th June 2019 – see you there.
