GOLFERS are lining up to tee off for charity next week, but organisers are still looking for more teams to join in.

The Pro-Am Charity Golf Competition is organised by members of Cleveland Police, and this year it will be raising money for the special baby care unit at South Cleveland Hospital, in Middlesbrough.

So far, 35 teams have signed up to play, but there are still places for more.

Teams are made up of two golfers from a sponsor company who are then teamed up with a police officer and a professional golfer to play the round at Wynyard Golf Club.

The day's golfing includes an evening meal and the chance to win prizes awarded to the first eight teams. It will cost £275.

Anyone interested in playing for the charity is urged to contact Detective Superintendent Mark Braithwaite, at Hartlepool Police, on (01642) 302104.

Det Supt Braithwaite said: "It's going to be a great fundraising day out.

"In the past, the event has been a major fundraiser for local charities, and this year we are hoping it will be the best ever, supporting the special care baby unit which provides care for infants throughout the North-East."
