Homestart Elmbridge has enlisted John Inverdale to make its charity golf day one to remember.

The sports presenter said he was pleased to support the event at Effingham Golf Club on March 28.

He said: “I’ve heard a lot about this charity and I think it is a fantastic service to help families.

“We all know how difficult it can be to bring up a young family when things are made difficult through illness or many other factors that life throws at you.”

There will be an auction with several prizes, including holidays in Barbados and Venice.

Angela Hills, administrator for Homestart, Elmbridge, thanked Inverdale for his support.

She said: “We are excited that John has offered to play the first nine holes on the day so anyone wanting the chance to play with John should contact us.”
