“Raising money for Bowel Cancer UK through golf days has been one of the most rewarding things I've done in my life. My dad suggested a golf day - his mates versus my mates. So we did the first 'Lads vs Dads' day in 2009. 

It was a big success with money made on every player's entry fee plus more from Dad's raffle (most people spent £10 on tickets). It was so much fun we decided to do it every year and it became bigger and bigger. 

I've played golf since I was a young teenager and my dad took me down to his club. I love the sport and maintain that it's the best way to catch up with your mates (or your old-timers!). It's a great way to get people together and I think that our golf days would not have been as successful without the fundraising aspect that really gets people committing to the day.”

“My wife Sheila was diagnosed with stage four bowel cancer in May 2003 and was advised that she would be lucky to survive more than 18 months. Almost 6 years later, two major operations, four sessions of chemotherapy and many hard times, Sheila lost her fight in January 2009 at the age of 59.

I’d been a member at West Malling golf club for some 40 years and many at the club knew Sheila, the terminal nature of her illness and her determination to fight for life. The support of the club and its members helped me through some of the darkest days. When Sheila died, I not only wanted to raise funds in her memory but also include my many friends at the golf club and so, in September 2009 I organised my first charity golf day.

The emphasis of the day was always on fun and enjoyment, Sheila was always in my thoughts and although exhausting I always felt a huge sense of achievement, particularly when seeing how much had been raised in the fight against bowel cancer.

In 2011 I was fortunate enough to meet a lovely lady Julie who subsequently became my wife. Julie enthusiastically supported me in all my fundraising ventures. Tragically, Julie was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in March 2022 and died just six months later. Do you ever come to terms with losing loved ones to cancer and do you ever get over it? No, but you do learn to live with it. Now in my 78th year and having been treated for prostate cancer myself, I spend my days working with my local NHS & pushing the message for all cancers that early diagnosis is essential and of course, still playing golf!”

Join our Super Golf Challenge and help us work towards a future where no one dies of bowel cancer.
