Longest Day Golf
Here are a few words to let you know of a charity event I am participating in on 21st June 2013. I appreciate that you, like myself, get many requests for charitable donations and we cannot always give to every request, however, here’s a charity that many would happily pay into and be grateful never to require its support.

Statistics tell us that one in three of us will, possibly, get cancer and it’s the toughest thing most of us will ever face. If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, or a loved one has, you’ll want a team of people in your corner supporting you every step of the way. Macmillan Cancer Support provides medical and financial support and push for better cancer care. http://www.macmillan.org.uk

The team event I have entered this year is to spend around 14 hours on a golf course trying to play 72 holes of golf in a single day as part of Macmillan Cancer Support’s, “Longest Day Golf Challenge”.

For a seasoned golfer this may appear to be ‘heaven’ and of course, I will enjoy it, but considering we will each play over 300 shots, walk well over 25,000 yards, it will prove to be a tough day…. but not nearly as tough as fighting serious illnesses.

East Herts Golf Club has kindly donated access to the course for the day for all four team members and they are also putting on lunch for us. The course is in great condition, so if you would like to pop along and support us during the day, just let me know!

We will be teeing off at 5am and not likely to finish until after 9pm.

I am hoping that you will help with the sponsorship to help raise funds for this valuable cause, no matter what the amount.

Please either email me a pledge or feel free to visit our Just Giving page at http://www.justgiving.com/3POMSandanAUSSIE .

Many thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you.
