Mr Reed, who has previously hosted golf tournaments said: “My daughter attended the same performers stage school as Chloe and they were best friends.
“I’ve known Lisa and Mark for a number of years and what they have done, alongside Caroline, with the trust is amazing.
“I wanted to do something to show my support to the Trust and organising a golf tournament is something I know I can do as I’ve held a number of them in the past.
“The support has been overwhelming from the golf club to the donations of raffle prizes.”
Spectators are welcome to attend and support the event.
