Dust off your golf clubs as we are delighted to announce that we are co-hosting The Duke of Edinburgh Cup Qualifier again this year alongside Titchwell Manor and Eric’s Fish & Chips – and supporting a brand new charity.
Taking place on Friday 26th April at Norfolk’s prestigious Hunstanton Golf Club, the East of England Qualifier will see participants compete across 18 holes for a place in the eagerly-anticipated The Duke of Edinburgh Cup World Finals held in Windsor in September.
The day will begin with tea, coffee and bacon rolls and finish with a three-course meal and prize-giving evening at Titchwell Manor, where the top-scoring pair will be announced and invited to The Duke of Edinburgh Cup World Finals. Here they will compete over two top courses before playing a round on The Royal Household Course at Windsor Castle. Also included in the prize are five nights’ accommodation and a gala dinner at Windsor Castle in the presence of a senior member of the Royal Family.
It is the third year we have hosted The Duke of Edinburgh Cup Qualifier, raising over £36,000 in the process for The Duke of Edinburgh nominated charities.
This year, we are delighted to announce that the tournament will support a new charity – Adapted Sports Hub Trust, which provides accessible sports facilities for children and adults with disabilities in Norfolk. It is currently fundraising for a £3m Paralympic-style facility in Kings Lynn to include a sports hall, changing facilities and sensory room, all adapted to suit those with disabilities.
The trust received an early boost to its efforts when it was presented with a cheque for £10,000 last week courtesy of KFE and Titchwell Manor via The Duke of Edinburgh Cup.
Paul Williams, Managing Director at KFE, comments: “If you’re a keen golfer, up for a challenge and want to help raise money for a worthy cause, please join us for The Duke of Edinburgh Cup 2024 East of England Qualifier. It’s a fantastic day, and if you are fortunate enough to win the qualifier, taking part in the World Finals is an unforgettable experience.”
Tickets cost £450 per pair or £900 for a team of four. All proceeds will go to Adapted Sports Hub Trust.
