Teeing-off for charity

Independent opticians hosts charity golf day

Edmonds and Slatter golf day

Edmonds & Slatter Opticians has hosted its second official charity golf day in order to raise funds for Matthew Needham’s Treasure Chest.

The local charity was established in 2005 after Matthew Needham died at the age of nine following open heart surgery at Glenfield Hospital.

The charity aims to raise funds to purchase medical equipment for the children’s Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at Glenfield Hospital. It also provides gifts, special days out and medical equipment for poorly children and families in the local area.

The golf day, which was held in September, was organised by optometrist and partner at Edmonds & Slatter Opticians, Saagar Hirani.

Golfers were “fined” for a number of things as they played, with all funds raised going towards the charity. Prizes were given on the day for the longest drive and closest to the pin.”
