Chris Walker (Partner) took part in Headway Blackpool Wyre & Fylde’s charity golfing event held at Lytham Green Drive Golf Club on Friday 3rd May 2019.
The day started with bacon butties with tea and coffee, followed by an incredibly moving talk by former semi-pro golfer, Chris Murray.
Chris Murray was involved in a serious head injury accident that required a craniotomy. This is a surgical operation to remove part of the bone from the skull to access the brain underneath.
As a result of the accident, he lost his job and now needs to be chaperoned whenever he has contact with his child. Headway helped him with his rehabilitation and are involved with organising structure and activities to his daily life.
For the golfing event Chris Walker was part of a team, joined by Peter Rhodes and Nicholas Leech of Nestor, and Richard Powell of JMW Solicitors (all pictured).
Although the playing conditions were not too bad, the team didn’t win anything unfortunately – but at least it was an enjoyable contest at the beautiful greens of Lytham.
The day ended with a meal, and a raffle and auction event with some very lucrative prizes including a Geoff Hurst signed England T-shirt and a Ryder Cup 2018 hat signed by Ian Poulter!
We would like to thank Headway Blackpool Wyre & Fylde for putting on this Charity Golf Day and look forward to supporting more Headway events in the future!
