Sir A P McCoy OBE will host a special charity golf day at Rockliffe Hall on Monday 29th April to raise money for the Injured Jockeys Fund, of which he is President.

Teams of four are being invited to sign up for the event which last year welcomed competitors including Alan Shearer CBE, Tony Pulis and Neil Bausor.

The day will begin with a breakfast roll and a hot drink before teams take to the course, with competitions including Nearest the Pin, Longest Drive and Beat the Pro. A prize giving and two course dinner will then take place in the Grassholme Suite.

The Injured Jockeys Fund is based in Newmarket and was founded following the devastating accidents of Tim Brookshaw, and a few months later, Paddy Farrell, in the 1964 Grand National. Both falls resulted in severe paralysis which immediately ended their careers.

The charity has since spent over £18 million helping over 1000 jockeys, whose injuries have forced some of them to give up riding, providing care, compassion and financial help.

Date and time:                  Monday 29th April, arrival for 10.30am, 12 noon shotgun start
Price:                                     £320 per team, including a donation to the charity
