Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, hosted a two-day golf event last month alongside former professional golfer Peter Alliss and many other celebrities. The 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 golf players 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 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 which included Harry Redknapp, Graeme Souness, Tiff Needell, Willie Thorne, Jimmy Glass and many 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 generis 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.”
