Tenth anniversary of charity set up in golfer's memory

The event is being held in memory of golfer Adam Clayton

A golf foundation based in the Thames Valley is about to celebrate its Tenth Anniversary.

The Adam Clayton Foundation was set up in memory of a Berkshire golfer called Adam Clayton who raised thousands of pounds for a friend who had cancer. Tragically, after his friend passed away Adam himself was diagnosed with a brain tumour and died shortly afterwards aged just 23.

His foundation was created by his father, Chris, who lives in Sherfield-on-Loddon in Hampshire.

The charity helps fund promising young golfers in Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire and sends the best to the Algarve in Portugal for a training academy, where Adam coached.

The Adam Clayton Golf Foundation is hosting its tenth annual Golf Day at Donnington Grove, near Newbury, on 5 July 2019.
