Budleigh Lions Golf Day

17th August 2021

Exciting news! The Budleigh Lions Golf Day is just around the corner on Thursday 19th August.  This year all proceeds will be going to ‘Diabetes and Vascular Research’ at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital,  which means that they’ll go towards helping people living with diabetes-related illnesses.

We are so happy to see this event go ahead again, it’s one we always look forward to.  Golfing and tournament fundraisers are a great opportunity to get together, enjoy the outdoors, make new memories whilst enjoying ourselves, and support a good cause all at the same time.

The Budleigh Lions run a number of events through the year, having sadly been curtailed recently due to Covid it’s great to see them starting up again to raise much needed funds for the community.  Their motto is “We Serve” and Club members get involved in various community projects to help either individuals or local organisations that need some support.  You can find out more about the work they do here

Patrick Langrishe from our Budleigh Salterton office met with organiser Geoff Paver this week to hand over the bundle of tees provided by Gilbert Stephens,  ready to be placed in all competitors welcome bags for the event.  Geoff said: “This is our 17th Charity Golf Day and Gilbert Stephens and their predecessors have sponsored hole No.1 since commencement, additionally they have provided us with golf tees this year to include in our starter packs.    We have raised many thousands of pounds since we started for various local charities.

Not only have Gilbert Stephens sponsored us for our Golf Day but they have also, for 38 years now, sponsored the pebble building/design competition held on the beach during our annual Gala Week at the end of May.    Unfortunately, this has been cancelled for the past 2 years due to Covid-19 but we are holding the event on August Bank Holiday Monday from 10.00 am – 12 noon”.
