TWO teams will be battling it out to get a hole-in-one for charity.

Sussex Police and Bognor Regis’ Morrisons store have teamed up to stage a charity golf tournament in aid of St Wilfrid’s Hospice in Donnington.

The event is being organised by PC Andrea Beard and Mick Guppy, a security guard at the Bedford Street store.

“We both like golf and we thought it would be something fun to do for charity,” said PC Beard.

The teams will be made of representatives from both organisations.

Planning for the charity event started last November and the pair are determined to raise as much money as possible for St Wifrid’s Hospice.

Mr Guppy said: “St Wilfrid’s is a cause very close to me. Both my mother and brother had cancer. St Wilfrid’s do an absolutely fantastic job – all their services are provided free of charge and they make a huge difference.”

PC Beard added: “Cancer is something that sadly touches almost everybody and the hospice does an amazing job helping those when they really needed it.”

There will also be the chance to win a signed picture of golf’s world number one Rory McIlroy and a signed cap from Justin Rose in an auction.

The event, on April 15 at Chichester Golf Club, will also include a raffle which local businesses have already contributed to, but any more donations would be gratefully received.

Businesses have also been sponsoring a hole for £50 and there is still space for more to do so.

There will also be charity bag packing day at Bognor’s Morrisions today.
