The 27th Poppleton & Appleby
Celebrity Golf Classic at St Pierre
This fabulous event, hosted by Poppleton & Appleby and the Variety Club Golfing Society, has been going for 27 years. I attended my first one back in 1994, when I was still wearing shorts, as pointed out by the host, Martin Coyne.
Guests are entertained over the weekend, starting with a gala dinner on Sunday night, followed by a celebrity golf day the next morning. The objective is to donate a Sunshine Coach to various schools, this year's lucky recipient was Queensbury School in Erdington, Birmingham.
Amongst the celebrities attending were; Kevin Whately, Tiff Needell, Warren Clarke, Len Goodman, Paul Jones, Willie Thorne and Keith O'Keefe to name but a few.
