All monies raised go to the Refúgio Aboim Ascensão, in Faro, which cares for up to 95 children who have been neglected, abandoned and in some cases, abused.

This year’s tournament takes place Saturday, June 8 at the glorious Pestana Vila Sol resort, in Vilamoura. Everyone is welcome to come along. It’s free to watch the golf, albeit donations are always welcome.

There’s still room for one more team of three golfers. More details about entering a team are available at

The Sir Bobby Robson celebrity golf tournament is the only fundraising event led by the Robson family itself, including Sir Bobby’s wife, Lady Elsie. Carla Pargana, Executive of the Refúgio, said: “The Refúgio Aboim Ascensão was the first emergency temporary shelter center in Portugal and, with you all, side by side, we do our best to give a better future to the children we look after. We really do appreciate the support we receive from the Robson family and everyone involved in the tournament.”

If you play golf and enjoy football or just want to do something wonderful for children who’ve had a difficult start in life, then please join us. It’s a great event for a fantastic cause.
