We have again pledged to keep our community at heart and help nearby school children fundraise to keep their lollipop lady for the next academic year (you can read more about this below). To do that we have teamed up with many local clubs, who have kindly donated a 4 ball voucher to help us. You can bid on these fantastic one off packages below.....
About the cause
Once again, we have agreed to help the Parklands Community Crossing Group raise the £5000 needed to keep the 1200 pupils of Gosforth Park First, St Oswald's RC Primary and Gosforth East Middle schools crossing the road to school safely.
The group were formed by parents after Newcastle City Council axed funding for 53 crossing patrol wardens in 2016. Since then the crossing has been entirely funded by it's Gosforth community.
Last year our Golf Club members really got behind this cause, raising a fabulous £500 and helping to safeguard the lollipop lady on the blind bend of Broadway East, Gosforth until July 2020. This year as well as selling raffle tickets behind the bar, we are running this silent auction.
You can bid as an individual or make a team bid. All proceeds will go to the lollipop campaign.
You can bid by completing the form at the bottom of this page. We wil update the chart below with the current highest bidder. Due to the current situation we feel it appropriate to delay the end date until things get back to normal. Happy bidding!
