18th Walkers Charity Golf Day, The Grove 2014
Our patron Gary Lineker kindly hosted the 18th Walkers Charity Golf Day at ‘The Grove’ on Monday 6th October 2014.
The golfers braved the wet weather in good spirits and by all accounts it was a great day of golf enjoyed by all our supporters old and new.
After being presented with over-stuffed goody bags filled with Walkers and Espa gifts and a delicious breakfast served in the Stables Restaurant, the players made their way to the new conservatory for Gary’s welcome.
They were well briefed by the Grove golf team and then they took to their buggies for a wonderful game won by the Gary Bobbe team.
Our main sponsors WalkersPepsico provided the drinks, crisps and snacks that kept the golfers going for 18 holes in the relentless pouring rain!
The great guys from Prezzo took a team, sponsored the brochure, and the wine for dinner and donated gift cards for the golfers. To our delight they also presented Fight for Life with a magnificent donation of £62,791 from the Prezzo FFL Tropicana pizza!
This year our superb celebrity supporter Willie Thorne, officiated our auction with great skill and many laughs, and we were delighted to say, we made an amazing total of over £126,000 from the entire day!
Each year we are ‘knocked out’ by the support for our charity, as there are so many other great golf days.
Thank you so very much to all the celebrity golfers and our supporters who helped to make this, our best golf day ever.
Fight for Life Golf Day Committee.
