The 4th ‘Wolves Legends Charity Golf Day’ was held on 21 August 2015 at Wergs Golf Club, Tettenhall, Wolverhampton.
Due to heavy rain our original date of 14 August was hastily re-arranged for the following week. Our sincere apologies to the teams that were unable to attend due to pre-arranged holidays etc. A big ‘thank you’ to the twenty teams who gave their support at very short notice!
Wergs owner ‘Monty Moseley’ is passionate about golf, the facilities at Wergs are first class, the course is challenging and the greens were in excellent condition.
This year’s winning team was ‘POD’ Phil Smith, 2nd place ‘Ex Wolves Team’, 3rd place ‘Oosha’ led by Steve Burgwin.
Nearest the Pin on the 9th was ‘George Wall’ and ‘Bryn Robins’ hit the Longest Drive.
A superb two course meal was served in ‘The Clifford Suite’ where Ex Wolves Star Steve Kindon was our compere for the evening. This years After Dinner entertainment was provided by the very talented ‘Joey Jones’ Ex Liverpool Footballer and our sincere thanks to Impressionist ‘Kevin Connolly’ (BBC Dead Ringers) what a fabulous end to the evening, he had the audience in fits of laughter!
We were delighted to welcome Ex Wolves players Phil Parkes, Kenny Hibbitt, Geoff Palmer, Terry Wharton, Colin Brazier, Mel Eves, Mick Holmes, Willie Carr, Gerry O’Hara, Mark Clyde and Phil Nicholls. Dave Jones Ex Wolves Manager, Martin Buchan Ex Man Utd, Richard Jobson Ex Oldham/Man City and Pat Lalley, Doncaster Rovers.

Charities to receive £1000.00 each are: Maureen Parkes Breast Care Fund, Compton Hospice, Little Hearts Matter and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

Former Wolves Goalkeeper donates equipment to Hospice in memory of his wife
Former Wolves Goalkeeper Phil Parkes has donated a piece of specialist equipment to the Compton Hospice Lymphoedema Clinic in memory of his wife Maureen who died from cancer five years ago.
Phil, Maureen and close friend Sheila Edwards set up the Maureen Parkes Breast Cancer Care Fund in 2010 with the aim of raising funds through key events for charitable causes across the borough.
We were therefore delighted to welcome Phil and Sheila to the Compton Hospice Lymphoedema Clinic this week as they presented us with a Perometer machine worth over £13,000.
This piece of specialist equipment uses digital technology to measure and monitor the changing size of a patient’s limb which has become swollen as a result of the chronic condition Lymphoedema.
Stacy Pugh, Compton Hospice Lymphoedema Clinical Nurse Manager, commented: “The Perometer has a frame that slides up and down the length of the patient’s arm or leg. Infrared rays then capture a picture of the affected limb and calculate length, circumference and volume. This information is then transferred to a computer which records the information so we can make comparisons to previously stored measurements. Measurements take only a few minutes and are completely painless.
“We are so incredibly grateful to The Maureen Parkes Foundation for their very generous donation. The addition of the Perometer will greatly enhance our patient’s experience.”
Since 2010 The Maureen Parkes Breast Cancer Fund has raised in excess of £60,000 and enabled many community groups and organisations to fund essential equipment which aims to improve the lives of those living with the effects of Cancer.
