Can you score into the floating hole of the Thames?

On Sunday, March 8, the community of seething wells gathered at the woody bar in Kingston Upon Thames.

The event was to raise money for charity. The charity enables creative youth to realise their potential. The deal was three dough golf balls for a £5 donation.

Robin Hutchinson who is the founder said: “Is there a better way to end a year of fantastic sporting achievement than the British Bread Golf Open?

“I started the Bread Golf Open to stop people taking life too seriously.”

The dough feast attracted many people passing by and it is estimated that they raised app

roximately £800.

“I was just walking with my friends and decided to stop and see what was happening. They looked like they were having fun,” said Ethan.

Katie a Kingston university student said:” Golf is really not my thing but I had to try and the money was going to charity as well. Which was motivating.”

This year the money will go to Creative Youth based in Kingston who organise The International Youth Arts Festival.

“My dad and I play golf all the time but I have never tried it with dough balls,” said Jamie a 12-year old boy who participated with his father in the event.

The state of Seething and people of Surbiton set up the unique event in 2009.
