Every year the Leek Golf Club Captain's raise money for their chosen charities through various events at the golf club.
This year’s Club Captain, Ken Hollins has raised over £13,000 for his charities, which are PETER ALLIS WHEELCHAIR FOUNDATION. For nearly 20 years Leek Golf Club have presented children with a Powered Wheelchair through the Peter Allis Wheelchair Foundation. These powered wheelchairs are Life Changing for the children and their families.
Before the Captain's Farewell Dinner on Saturday 30th November there will be a Presentation at 7pm of a Powered Wheelchair to a young boy called Leon who is a 5 year old and goes to Horton Lodge School, he likes to watch Peppa Pig and loves to go swimming as well.
