The weather was glorious at Leukaemia UK's annual Chairman's Golf day at Wildernesse Golf Club on May 4 and we would like to thank all those who supported this event.

We were honoured to have one of our trustees Professor Tony Pagliuca as our guest to play golf and speak at the lunch. His knowledge and passion in support of those living with blood cancer is immeasurable and Leukaemia UK are indebted to his ongoing commitment to both the charity and his profession.

It was our fifth annual event at Wildernesse Golf Club and once again supported by many who joined us at our very first Chairmain's Golf Day inaugural day at East Sussex National twelve years ago. It was also great to see some new and famous faces - Tom Lister kindly joined us, as captured in the photo, left.

The generous and kind support for this event has helped us raise an amazing £8,000 for our cause, thank you.

Our gratitude goes to those who have supported us on the day as well as our kind sponsors.

This year Miles Smith Ltd via Kevin Coomber offered extra sponsorship on the day, thank you.
