The celebrity gala dinner and golf tournament raised £20,825 for the local charity that provides vital support to children and adults living with disabilities in the county. This was thanks to generous guests and golfers who enjoyed an evening at the Haven Hotel, Sandbanks, and shotgun golf tournament at Parkstone Golf Club.
Guests at the gala enjoyed a three-course meal, auction and raffle and had the chance to chat with the celebrities on their table during the dinner. The following day, each team of three golfers played alongside one of the top celebs, who included Harry Redknapp, Graeme Souness, Tiff Needell, Willie Thorne, Jimmy Glass and more.
Lauren McCullough, events manager at Diverse Abilities, said, “This was an exclusive opportunity to dine and play golf with Peter Alliss and his celebrity friends. Everyone had a fantastic time and we are delighted to have raised over £20,000 for Diverse Abilities thanks to the generous guests and players.”
BBC Sports commentator Peter Alliss, who hosted the event alongside the charity and was the professional at Parkstone Golf Club for 13 years, said, “I had a thoroughly enjoyable two days raising funds for Diverse Abilities, which is a very worthy local cause.”
