The Sundridge Park Golf Club Captain’s Challenge & Fun Run

In September 2023, I became captain of Sundridge Park Golf Club. My captaincy provides a great opportunity to raise funds for four charities, Melanoma Focus, The Freddie Farmer Foundation, Everybreath Lung Cancer Support and The Rifles Benevolent Trust. As golfers, we are particularly susceptible to skin cancer as we spend a great deal of time on the golf course under the elements. As Melanoma Focus raises awareness of the sensible measures, we need to take to protect ourselves from the harmful rays of the sun, it felt like a good fit for us to give something back to them.

On Saturday 1st June, myself and around 80 members and charity representatives took part in a fun run around the west course of Sundridge Park Golf Club, the course is approximately 3.6 miles, with 480 feet of elevation. The event was a combination of serious runners and walkers. It was a fantastic day, enjoyed by all. Due to the generous nature of our sponsors, we raised a total of £15,000 to share evenly with my four chosen charities.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Paul for putting on this brilliant event and for raising vital awareness and funds. We are extremely grateful to everyone who supported this event and helped make it possible.
