BQ Charity Golf Days

BQ Magazine Charity Golf Day & Barbecue in aid of the Variety Build A Bus scheme.

Dates:  Thursday 19th April - Rockliffe Hall, Hurworth, Darlington

Wednesday 27th June - Matfen Hall, Matfen, Newcastle upon Tyne

The Appeal

These are events are being organised in aid of the Variety “Build A Bus” scheme in which room501 has committed to raising £20,000 over the next two years to raise sufficient funds to build a community bus for a worthy local cause. Room 501 Publishing has become one of the first sponsors of Variety the children’s charity’s (formerly Variety Club) latest campaign, and pledged their support in order to literally pay for a specialist Sunshine Coach, piece by piece. These golf days will assist to contribute to the charity initiative helping to raise money for the campaign. Variety, is the Children’s Charity dedicated to improving the lives of children and young people who need our help. They do this by raising funds for specialist minibuses, wheelchairs, sports equipment, hospital wards, and all sorts of other practical solutions that enable individuals, projects and organisations across the UK to give a wider range of opportunities to the children in their care.

The Venues

Rockliffe Hall

The award winning Rockliffe Hall is the most exciting 5-star luxury hotel resort to open in North East England. Set on a magnificent restored 18th century estate on the banks of the River Tees, just minutes from Darlington, the resort is renowned for one of Europe’s longest, and most challenging, golf courses. With five different tee positions, beginners to hardened professionals can enjoy the test. Set on the banks of the River Tees, the 350-acre course features lakes, wetland and woodland to add to the experience.

Matfen Hall

Matfen Hall Hotel, Golf and Spa is situated in the charming village of Matfen and is the ancestral home of Sir Hugh and Lady Blackett. This stately home is set in 300 acres of parkland with its golf course a regular venue for professional and county amateur events. Sympathetically laid out on a classic parkland landscape, the 6700 yard course incorporates challenging water features and unique obstacles such as the dry stone “ha ha” wall and offers an enjoyable test for golfers of all abilities.
