Igglesden Charity Day


Former England cricketer Alan Igglesden is hosting a celebrity golf day to raise money for the treatment of brain tumours.

Igglesden is making a good recovery after recently being diagnosed with a brain tumour, and during his treatment he discovered that most of the money used to research the condition comes from donations.

That has led the former Kent pace bowler to organise a charity day in aid of the UK Brain Tumour Society after gaining a first-hand insight into the work they do.

The event will take place at Redlibbets Golf Club near Sevenoaks in Kent - with all proceeds going to the charity to assist their research and campaign for more funding.

Players will compete in an individual Stableford, enjoying the round in teams of four. An evening buffet meal along with a guest speaker has also been arranged while competitors can take part in a putting contest, nearest-the-pin competition and even win a car if they have a hole-in-one.

Entrance is 300 for a team of four people, or 300 for a team of three plus a celebrity. Call Stuart Hennell on 01622-750185 or 07788-928338 for details
