Mike with his sons, Ben and Ollie.
Mike’s twin boys, Ben and Ollie were born with a life-shortening condition, MPS – Sanfilippo 111A. This is a metabolism disorder which delays development and causes significant neurological symptoms. Sadly Ben passed away in October 2012, shortly before his 10th birthday and Ollie died in May 2018, aged 15.
Mike’s boys were cared for by Helen & Douglas House for 15 years and he continues to raise money for this local charity through this annual golf day and other fundraising activities in Ben and Ollie’s memory which included climbing Kilimanjaro last September raising over £8000. He is also planning to take part in the Three Peaks 24 hour challenge in July this year.
The memorial golf day is a Four Ball Stableford event with best 2 scores and costs £260 to enter a team of four which includes coffee and biscuits on arrival, a 2-course buffet, auction and prize giving after the golf. Tee off times are from 12:45
