An annual golf tournament organised by two friends over three decades will raise money for a new children's hospice this year.
The 30th Prince Albert Open on Thursday, September 25 will be in aid of the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service.
The charity plans to build the hospice in Snowball Hill, Woodlands Park.
The tournament will be the last organised by Chris Stevens and Keith Barnes. It is based at the Prince Albert pub in Clewer Hill Road, Windsor – though the golf is played at Bird Hills Golf Centre at Hawthorn Hill.
Chris, of St Leonard’s Road, Windsor, explained how it started. He said: "Keith and I were discussing how other regulars in the pub could never share the fun of playing against a big field of golfers because they didn’t have official handicaps.
"So we thought we’d run our own tournament and give people handicaps ourselves."
