Organising your own golf day is a great way to help raise vital funds!
Before your golf day
Firstly, let us know about your Golf Day and we will do everything we can to support you. Ask your local golf club if you could host a golf day. Give yourself a couple of months to plan and advertise and try to go for a date that doesn’t clash with any other major events or occasions. Invite friends, family, colleagues and businesses. The more people, the more teams, the more you can raise (and the more fun!). Decide how much you are going to charge per team, don’t forget to cover any course fees, food and then a donation to Changing Lives.
During your golf day
Say a few words about why you're supporting Changing Lives to help people understand the difference their support makes, we can provide a video or presentation if you need. Get in touch with local businesses to see if they would like to sponsor a hole on the course.
Set up a Just Giving page to collect donations or take payments in cash on the day. Why not add a raffle, auctions or quiz to the end of your golf day to raise even more. You can even use our ready-made quiz with questions, answers and answer sheets. Either add this into your ticket price (we suggest £5pp) or ask for donations at the quiz. If you are holding a raffle or auction, try to get gifts free from local businesses. You can use our authorisation letter, just email our fundraising team for one!
