Saturday, 27th August - Action Medical Research

Another cheat! Well it is a bank holiday!


Keys to a brand new Renault Mégane will be on their way to anyone who can hit a hole-in-one at a forthcoming golf tournament!

The car, if won, will be provided by Dinnages Renault and paid for by Tozer Insurance. It’s the star attraction of “The Peter James Golf Classic” and could be won by hitting a hole-in-one on the 17th hole.

The event is in aid of the charity Action Medical Research and takes place at Haywards Heath Golf Club on Thursday, 8th September.

Last year saw the inaugural event raise more than £8,800 for the charity which funds research to improve the health of babies and children. The charity is 60 years old and has been at the forefront of medical breakthroughs such as the development of the UK polio vaccine (the sugar cube vaccine) and pioneering hip replacement surgery.

The event has been made possible by the sponsorship from a number of local businesses and there are competitions for golfers who get “nearest the pin”, “longest drive”, and “nearest the hole in two”.

As part of the fundraising, international author Peter James, who lives locally, is offering the opportunity for a local business in Haywards Heath to feature in his next Detective Inspector Grace novel.

Haywards Heath Renault dealer Dinnages dealer principal Tom Simpson, said: “We’re delighted to be involved and we’re looking forward to the tournament. We’d be thrilled to be able to handover the Renault Mégane to anyone who hits a hole-in-one on the 17th and would urge all participants to practise their golf swings before the event! The day should be a lot of fun and we’re hoping they will raise as much as possible for this charity which has achieved so much.”
