Dragons’ Den star Peter Jones’s annual Enterprise Golf Challenge at Bearwood Lakes Golf Club attracted a host of celebrities and raised around £45,000 for the Peter Jones Foundation.

The competition was followed by a live auction with fantastic prizes up for grabs including VIP tickets to Celebrity Juice and a delicate and sympathetically framed etching by Salvador Dali.

Among those taking part were actor Bradley Walsh, presenter Vernon Kay and singer Brian McFadden, who battled it out on the 18 hole course. A delighted Peter says: “Each year the Golf Challenge gets better and better and we raise a significant amount of money to help young people across the country have the chance of a brighter future. Next year is our tenth anniversary and we are focused on making this event our biggest one yet! Thank you to everyone who donated so generously and helped to support the event.”

The Foundation works to help students achieve a brighter future through key initiatives including the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy, Ignite Apprenticeships and Tycoon in Schools, supported by its patron, HRH The Duke of York.
