BWitC Charity Golf Day Success

Golf Day

Bolton Wanderers in the Community hosted their annual Charity Golf Day, helping to raise funds to support the work carried out across Bolton by the Charity.

The Golf Day, hosted by BWFC legend John McGinlay and held at Bolton Golf Club, was run in aid of raising funds to support the mission of Bolton Wanderers in the Community (BWitC) to use the power of Bolton Wanderers Football Club to inspire, support and deliver positive change.

On the day and alongside the four ball stableford format, there were longest drive and closest to the pin competitions for the players. With an added ‘Beat the Future Pro’ challenge, where golfers had the chance to beat future professional golf prospect and local player, Joel Berry, in a closest to the hole challenge.  

Across the day and through the accompanying raffle and auction, a total of £11,285 has been raised.

Speaking on the day, BWitC Deputy CEO, Ben Lawton said:

“It’s been another brilliant day raising vital funds for the Charity, its great to see so many local Bolton businesses and Bolton Wanderers supporters taking part and showing their support for the Charity.  

“Sponsoring the event and refreshments buggy, both Harrisons Estate Agents and TVD Group have been first class in helping to organise, deliver on the day and make sure that it is the success that it continues to be. This has been our fifth year, we’re growing year on year, and all we can do is thank everyone involved for their continued support.”
