GOLFERS are invited to tee off for charity to raise money for Hearing Dogs for the Deaf.

The fun day begins with a bacon butty and will include competitions, a silent auction and prizes, rounded off with a two course meal.

All money raised will help fund the training of a hearing dog for a deaf person.

Volunteer puppy socialiser, Deborah Maloney, of Chatteris, said: “These dogs are life changing for people and sadly there’s a waiting list of up to five years to get one.

“They give people confidence to go out and about more and just as importantly, when you walk out with one of our dogs, people stop and chat, which is a great ice breaker.”
