Peter James Golf Classic charity event: calling local businesses and participants

24 July 2014

Local, best-selling author, Peter James is is calling on competitors and local businesses to sign up now to his Golf Classic event, organised by children's charity Action Medical Research. 

The annual event is now in its fifth year, raising over £52,000 for the charity, and will take place on Wednesday 10 September, again at the finely manicured and carefully maintained Haywards Heath Golf Club. Sponsored by the Harwoods Group, the South East car dealership, it is limited to 32, 4-ball teams and has some great prizes up for grabs.

Peter James will be on hand to autograph his latest crime thriller at the Golf event. Want You Dead is the 10th book in the award-winning Detective Superintendent Roy Grace series, which is set in Brighton. The series is now translated into 36 languages and has sold 14 million copies worldwide.

Sussex-based Peter, whose latest crime thriller was published earlier this summer, is calling on all with a love of golf to get involved and sign up now. He is also urging local businesses to support the event. He says:

“I know that child health research is desperately underfunded so it’s great to work with Action Medical Research and to be able to help them a little with the incredible work they do.”

“Already many of last year's competitors have booked their tee times for the Golf Classic - so don't miss out and sign up now, it’s such a great, fun day! There are also many ways local businesses can support the event and promote their goods or services, without even having to pick up a club – by sponsoring a hole, advertising in the event magazine, making a donation or giving a raffle prize.”

Action Medical Research is currently funding work around conditions including premature birth, stillbirth, epilepsy, meningitis, cerebral palsy, brain cancer and some rare and distressing conditions.
