Local golfers will be teeing off to raise funds for the Gurkha Welfare Trust and Help for Heroes. Following the 2015 earthquake in Nepal, which destroyed the homes of many Gurkha veterans, there’s a drive to build affordable homes for them. Costing just £3,000 each, they will be built to withstand any future quakes.
Anyone interested in playing in the charity match on Friday 9th August, should contact Gainsborough Golf Club on 01427 613088. A hole can be sponsored for £50.00, or donations (cheques made out to Gurkha Welfare Trust) can be sent to John Simpson, 12 The Crescent, Beckingham DN10 4PR.
