Deniliquin Golf Club will host the Chip in 4 Change charity golf day on Sunday.

The four person ambrose event is a fundraiser for the Channel 4 Change charity.

Channel 4 Change was started by Deniliquin High School teacher Brenda Norman, who will attempt to swim the English Channel to raise awareness of mental health and establish initiatives to support individuals who may be suffering.

Her aim is to raise at least $40,000, with funds going towards mental health in Deniliquin.

The day will include aquatic themed novelty holes with prizes to be won, as well as two ‘cash grab’ holes where you pay $5 a hit and 50 per cent of the money goes to the charity and the other half to the golfer nearest to the pin.

A raffle will also be held, with prizes from major sponsors Deniliquin Travel Centre and The Crossing Cafe up for grabs.

There are still spots open to participate. Cost is $25 per person including a barbecue lunch.

Register your team by contacting the Deniliquin Golf Club on 5881 3333.

It will be a busy weekend for Brenda Norman, with the physical education teacher tackling the swim leg of the Murray Quadrathlon in Yarrawonga tomorrow.

The Murray Quad is a 3.2km swim, 21.1km run, 91.4km cycle and 25km paddle, starting in Yarrawonga and finishing in Tocumwal.

The organising committee of the event have called the swim leg the Channel 4 Change Inland Open Water Swim and are also promoting the charity by supporting the Channel 4 Change team from Deniliquin.

The Deni team consists of Norman (swim), Josh Perizzolo (run), Matt Kiley (cycle), Jack Richards (cycle) and Sam North (paddle).

Following the quad event will be a mini fete, where Norman will host a Channel 4 Change stand.
