The Axis Foundation Charity Golf Day

Posted on

For the second year running the Axis Foundation recently hosted the inaugural charity golf day. The Alan Curbishley led event at the London Club, exceeded expectations and raised £26,000 – £7,000 more than the previous year! Our charity partners this year are our long-standing partner Demelza Hospice Care for Children and our charity arm the Axis Foundation.

Our host for the day was our Axis Foundation Patron, TV personality and sports pundit Alan Curbishley. Our celebrities included famous footballers, Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola; England’s hero Sir Trevor Brooking; Roy Houghton who scored the winner against Italy in the 1994 World Cup, and the impressionist Aaron James, who specialises in sports stars. Despite the unfortunate weather, the sports itself followed by a delicious meal and raffle kept everyone in high-and-generous spirits.

The players and celebrities were also joined by representatives of the two charities who explained the work they undertake.
Demelza Hospice Care for Children helps sick children who may not live a long life, to live a full life. The Hospice holds a place very dear in all our hearts and has been a charity partner of Axis since before the Foundation was founded. At the Celebrity Golf Day, the Axis Foundation presented Demelza with a cheque for £70,000 which takes the total Axis/Axis Foundation donations to Demelza nearly £600,000!

Last years Charity Golf Day raised over £18,000 for Sparks Medical Research Charity and Demelza Hospice Care for Children. The event featured famous faces such as Sir Trevor Brooking and Roy Hodgson and those who attended were able to play with a celebrity captain and test their skills, all whilst raising money for both charities.
