I chose CRY as my charity to support when my year as Captain began in November 2012. I have spent a large part of my life watching, playing and teaching sport and therefore have an interest in the cardiac health of our young.
The raffle table was a sight to behold and the guests needed no persuasion whatsoever to buy tickets.
Golfers were treated to a selection of homemade cakes in the halfway house, along with a warming cup of tea or coffee.
After dinner, Michael Collie from BBC Midlands gave a brief speech and conducted the auction. A variety of items were on offer ranging from a signed football to lunch at the Tower of London and a tour of the Aston Martin factory.
Many golf clubs had donated vouchers and these were bid on with a silent auction.
The day was a huge success. Many thanks to everyone who took part in the day – planners, helpers and competitors. The total amount raised was £4314.82.
