Raising money for Special Olympics GB

This year the Captain's Charity will be raising funds for Special Olympics GB.

With my original captaincy of 2020 ruined by covid, and the second lockdown in early 2021 upsetting a second years calendar of BUNGS events, hopefully we can look forward to a full year of golf in 2022.

My chosen charity is Special Olympics GB, part of an international network that provides sporting events for competitors with learning difficulties. All monies raised will be donated to the North Staffs region where local events are held at sporting facilities in the Stoke area.

My son James has been involved with Special Olympics since the mid-nineties and he competed in the Toronto Winter games in 1997.

Since then he has been to South Carolina, various cities in the UK and mainland Europe competing in Basketball and also track and field events.

Special Olympics strives to be a leader in driving societal change and inclusion through the power of sport for people with learning disabilities in Great Britain. I’ve seen James become a more confident rounded person, holding down a job at a pottery, living independently in his own flat, cooking and cleaning and building a social life in the local community.

I hope that the funds we raise will help the next generation of people with intellectual disabilities to grow their abilities through sport to live a life as rich as James.
