Following our successful ‘Evening with the Pundits’ fundraiser with Alan Shearer and Ian Dowie in March, Ups ‘n’ Down are delighted to announce our inaugural golf day which will take place this Autumn on Friday 2nd November at Collingtree Park Golf Club. This is an exciting event and we hope that we will be joined by friends (new and old), family and businesses from across the county to raise funds and awareness for the group and our work. Please find details at the bottom of this page.

As well as being an opportunity to support a great cause, this is a superb opportunity to play one of the midlands’ finest courses which has hosted the prestigious British Masters twice and is a current venue on the PGA European tour 2012. The picture below shows the signature 18th hole with island green which is a challenge not to be missed!
