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.
