Golfers helped boost fund for vital cause
At times they braved the elements, but the golfers and their supporters who turned out for the Nigel Mansell Golf Classic at Stoke Park helped boost funds for a vital cause.
Nigel Mansell OBE is president of UK Youth, a charity at the heart of a national network of organisations dedicated to supporting young people to realise their potential. Many people are surprised to learn that the charity was founded in 1911, so is now celebrating its centenary.
One golfing team, The Four Ronnies, even flew in from America for the event. After the golf there was a chance to enjoy a superb meal and awards presentation at beautiful Stoke Park. Auction prizes included a signed, treasured England rugby union shirt from Jason Leonard, who attended.
