Charity Golf Day Launched in North East to Support Industry Charity NewstrAid

A charity golf day will be taking place in County Durham on Thursday 11th May to raise money for industry charity NewstrAid.

Organised by the charity’s North East Area Committee, the event will take place at the South Moor Golf Club in Stanley and costs £100 for a team of 4 or £25 for an individual to take part.

Tom Rodger, Operations Director for NewstrAid, said “Our area committees do a fabulous job organising events and raising money for the charity all over the UK and we are delighted that the North East committee will be hosting a Golf Day this year. The money raised at this event will provide essential funding for our work which is currently very much focused on providing support to colleagues who are struggling due to the cost of living crisis.”

Anyone interested in taking part in the golf day should visit and click on Open Days/Competitions to book a place. The day will include bacon rolls on arrival, tee times from 8am to 1pm and prizes for the top teams and nearest the pin.

Tom Rodger added; “We hope very much that a wide range of businesses and individuals from the local area will be able to join us for a wonderful day of golf which will raise money for very worthy cause.”

The North East area committee is one of 13 committees around the UK made up of people who currently work or have previously worked in the sale or distribution of newspapers and magazines. Their role is to raise awareness and funds for NewstrAid and they organise a wide range of events and activities from quiz nights, to sky dives. Anyone interested in joining their local area committee should contact Tom Rodger and further information can be found on the NewstrAid website
