Lee Dixon, George Graham, Les Ferdinand and Bob Wilson were amongst the celebrities competing in a charity golf day at Brocket Hall on May 17. Teams teed off in aid of the Willow Foundation, raising 50,000 for the national wish-granting charity. The Willow Foundation, set up by Arsenal legend Bob Wilson and his wife, Megs, provides special days for seriously ill 16 to 40-year-olds throughout the UK. More than 100 guests competed alongside the celebrities with big prizes up for grabs. To date the Willow Foundation has provided more than 6,000 of these special days, for people living with cancer, cystic fibrosis, motor neurone disease, organ failure, muscular dystrophy and Huntingtons, amongst other conditions.
