Variety Club Golfing Society Captain's Day at Walton Heath

Yesterday the first golf day of the season, the annual Variety Club Golfing Society Captain's Day, got off to a chilly start but it soon warmed up when the loyal celebrities and supporters turned out in force at Walton Heath golf course to support this worthwhile charity!

As usual, some of them had to struggle through 3 hours of M25 traffic, nothing new there, but all arrived safely.

This year's captain, Kevin Whately, opened the show with a great drive, as you can see from his reaction below. Other celebrities attending were Russ Abbott, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Roger de Courcy, Ian Irving, David Redfern, Paul Jones, Joe Goodman, Pat Jennings, Dave Bassett, Jess Conrad, Ray Clemence, Ian Balding and Chris Hollins.

Kevin Whately presented a mini bus to Woodlands Meed School from all the members of The Variety Club of Great Britain Golfing Society.

This year's co-sponsers were Anthony Trafford and the ever colourful Gavin Wilding!

Ian Irving was the unfortunate soul who spent longer on the M25 than on the golf course! But still did a great job on the auction.
