On Friday the 1st of October Belton Park Member Peter Thacker played golf all day to raise funds for the Matt Hampson Foundation's Rehabilitation Centre, originally closely linked to Leicester Tigers RFC but now catering for a much wider range of sports and disabilities. A most worthy cause, as I'm sure you will agree.
Despite playing in some unpleasant weather Pete battled on for the full 12 hrs and completed no less than 90 holes - raising the impressive sum of just over £4000. Quite a feat!
Pete wishes to thank all those members who sponsored his efforts and, of course to those who either played alongside him or acted as caddies, with a special mention to Club Captain, Andy Macgowan, Sue Walker- Sheriff, and Helen Long who battled on with him in the worst of the conditions.
Pete sends his apologies for the Evening dinner cancelation due to insufficient support. However, he hopes to be more successful in this respect next year. Maybe linking his marathon to a golf competition & dinner if the club agrees. So please watch this space.
