Radio breakfast show hosts Dino and Pete to tee off in aid of homeless
Radio double act Dino and Pete will swing into action todayto lend some star quality to our annual golf day in aid of homeless and vulnerable people.
The Capital FM breakfast show presenters have kindly volunteered to present the prizes at Beeston Fields Golf Club, in Wollaton Road.
In the spirit of friendly competition the duo – both of them complete strangers to the game of golf – have agreed to go head-to-head on the 18th hole in a Dino versus Pete competition. The winner will be the golfer to complete the tricky par four in the fewest strokes.
The event, sponsored by Robert Woodhead Ltd, will feature fifteen teams of four golfers from local businesses. Former champions Russell Scanlan will be going for a hat-trick of victories.
Framework Events Manager Andrea Caver said: “This popular annual golf day is one of the highlights of our fundraising year and we are delighted that Dino and Pete have agreed get involved. Once again we are grateful to all the teams for their generosity and commitment to the event, to Beeston Fields for providing such a terrific venue, and to our sponsors.”
Being complete novices when it comes to golf, Dino and Pete visited Beeston Fields last week to undergo some basic tuition with Head PGA Professional Antony Ryder….with mixed results!
Dino said: “We’re always keen to support Framework in whatever they do. When we heard they wanted us to play golf, we were a bit worried cause we haven’t got a clue what to do with a golf club.”
Pete added: “Thankfully Anthony and the lovely people at Beeston Fields invited us over for a lesson, and I think I’m right in remembering that I was marked as the potential winner - you have to see the video to see my real skills!”
Glenn Slater, Business Development Director at Woodhead, said: "We're delighted to be working with Framework again. It's always a fantastic event and of course the money raised goes towards making a real difference to so many local people. We have our team ready to go and we're all hoping for a beautiful day and a great competition."
