Steve Bull Foundation On Target

Charity golf day raises money for former Footballer's Foundation

Penn Golf Club will host the next charity golf day

Football legend Steve Bull’s charity looks set to smash through its £100,000 target well ahead of schedule, thanks to a charity golf day.

Former Wolves and England striker Bull set up the Steve Bull Foundation in August 2010 to help young, homeless, ill, disabled and disadvantaged people, and the foundation has already raised over £70,000.

26 teams made up of mostly local businessmen and women took part in the golf day, which also helped Promise Dreams, another local charity working with sick and terminally ill children, with the proceeds being split between the two groups.

Teams entered at the cost of £345 for the event in Tanworth-in-Arden’s Ladbrook Park Golf Club.

Bull told the gathered media, “If I can shake people’s hands, have a laugh with them and raise money at the same time, I’m happy with that. This is all I want to do for the rest of my life, really. I just feel I’ve been very fortunate in my life and if I can help people, then that’s great. The Foundation wanted to raise £100,000 in its first year and we’ve got £70,000 with a few months to spare, so we’re well on target.”
Bull has been a true inspiration to people since his retirement. He has done so much charity work over recent years, raising over £2million for promise Dreams, and I hope other current sportsmen and women follow in his footsteps and start up foundations or attend charity days to help people.  They’ve made their money doing something most of us would do for free so it’s good to see people who give up their time to help others.
