FLAMBOROUGH Head Golf Club has added another important date to its events calendar.

Big Yellow Friday is a national event to raise vital money for children with life-threatening liver disease.

As part of the fund-raising drive on March 2, the club will be holding a golf day and evening event, organised by Elle Wilkinson from Bridlington, who knows first-hand why the cause is such a good one to support.

The 16-year-old said: “The reason I have chosen to support Big Yellow Friday is because The Children’s Liver Disease Foundation has been a lifeline for me and my family following the diagnosis of a life-threatening liver condition when I was diagnosed with Auto Immune Hepatitis.

“This condition is rare and has badly scarred my liver to the point I was put on the organ transplant list.

“There are over 100 life-threatening and incurable liver diseases which strike at least two children every day in the UK. CLDF offers support to families affected, helps to educate healthcare professionals and is the lead charity funding vital research into the causes and treatment of childhood liver disease.”

The golf day costs £40 for a team of four, with tee off times available from 10.30am until 1.30pm.

Coffee and yellow-themed cakes will be served at the halfway house and the prize presentation in the evening will also feature a disco, raffle and auction, which is free for children and adults to attend.

For details about booking call Arthur Woodhouse at the club on 850333.

Flamborough Head is also staging the first Free Press Open Golf gents’ medal competition on Saturday, July 21.
