Our patron Gary Lineker hosted the 16th Walkers Charity Golf Day at ‘The Grove’ on Monday 29th October 2012.
Thankfully the weather was good to us though a little chilly, but 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 and a delicious breakfast in the Stables Restaurant, the players made their way to the courtyard for Gary’s welcome.
The golfers were briefed and then they took to their buggies for a wonderful game won by the ‘Oakfield’ team with celebrity Will Carling!
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 almost £50,000 from their FFL Tropicana pizza.
This year Willie Thorne ran our auction with great skill and we are excited to say we made an amazing total of over £96,000 from the whole day!
Each year we are ‘knocked over’ by the support for our charity, as there are so many other golf days.
Thank you so very much to all who helped to make this our best golf day yet.
