Former England football captain Gary Lineker and sports presenter Steve Rider will be taking part in a charity day at Richmond Golf Club next month.

Budding golfers are invited to show off their skills in the annual United Response Charity Golf Day, a charity that supports people with learning disabilities, mental health needs and physical disabilities to take control of their lives.

The Match of the Day presenter said he was happy to be supporting such a great cause.

“I wanted to support United Response because of the vital work it does in the heart of communities across the UK, and its excellent reputation for delivering results that transform lives,” he said.

The day will also include a 18-hole Stableford competition on the scenic 6091 yard course, as well as speeches and prize giving followed by a sumptuous three course lunch, served in the beautiful Grade 1 listed Sudbrook Mansion.

Other competitions include ‘The Longest Drive’ and ‘Beat the Pro’, with resident PGA pro Steve Burridge.

Last year, the day raised £11,000, and the charity are hopeful the same can be done this year.

Entry in the tournament costs £160 per golfer, £640 for a team of four or £80 for lunch only.
