Arsenal & Tottenham legends joined golfers at Hanbury Manor to raise funds for Hertfordshire-based charity, Willow earlier this month at the Hanbury Life Golf Day. Pat Jennings & Martin Chivers (Tottenham) and Bob Wilson (Arsenal) helped clients and suppliers raise almost £30,000 for the charity Wilson founded in memory of his daughter who died of a rare cancer aged just 31.
Hanbury members, Steve Watts (Life Environmental) and Chris Emery (Hanbury Wealth) spearheaded the Hanbury Life event, now in its second year and raised £50,000 for Willow in that time – the only national charity working with seriously ill young adults aged 16 to 40 to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable Special Days.
The 2016 Golf Day saw Lee Ashdown win both individual player, as well as a raffle prize winning his own weight in beer. The winning team, Environmental Essentials, were victorious on the day.
The Hanbury Life Golf Day comes hot on the heels of the five day Willow Senior Golf Classic, also at Hanbury Manor which saw professional golfers from around the world play alongside amateurs on this spectacular course.
Willow Life President and Co-Founder said, “Without the support of people like Chris and Steve, and prestigious Club’s like Hanbury Manor, Willow simply couldn’t provide the hundreds of Special Days it does each month. Thanks to their commitment to the cause, we will help transform the lives of young adults living with life threatening conditions at a time when they need it most.”
