All in a good cause

Tee off to support Nicky's charity

The fifth annual Mr Brightside Celebrity Golf Day is taking place at Shooters Hill Golf Club on Thursday 19th September 2013.

The day, organised by former Millwall assistant boss Theo Foley, is supported by ex-players from both The Lions and Charlton, as well as a number of other famous faces from the footballing world.

Each team of three will have a celebrity playing with them, and your round will be followed by an evening dinner and auction that will include signed England, Millwall and Charlton shirts.

Entry to the event is priced at just £195 per team, or £65 per person, and begins at 10am with registration before tea, coffees and bacon rolls ahead of a midday start on the course.

The Mr Brightside Project was set up in May 2009 in memory of Stephen Johns, son of former Lions keeper Nicky Johns, who, after a short battle with the illness, died of bowel cancer at the age of just 26.

Becoming a charity in 2010, the Mr Brightside Project aims to raise awareness of bowel cancer and end the myth that the disease only affects people over the age of 55.

The Mr Brightside charity has bought together all of the leading bowel cancer charities, including the Bobby Moore Fund, Beating Bowel Cancer and Bowel Cancer UK, along with the Men’s Health Forum and the Professional Footballer’s Association, to work together under the ‘Know the Score’ banner to embrace and utilise the power of football to raise awareness of the disease.
