United Kingdom – Former Premier League striker John Hartson is set to take part in this year’s 2016 John Henry Group Golf Break.
During his premiership career, Hartson (pictured left with event organiser Roger Day from Archway Events) was not only capped for Wales 51 times but played for Arsenal and West Ham United and Scottish Premier League side Celtic.
As well as taking part in the event, Hartson, who is now a respected football pundit with the BBC, will also be the main celebrity after dinner speaker on the first evening, where he is set to talk about his career in the Premier League and key life moments on and off the pitch – including his struggle with cancer.
Also a funraiser for testicular cancer, Hartson now actively aims to raise awareness for the illness through his charity, The John Hartson Foundation
There are only 40 places are available at the complimentary* golf break, which is an enjoyable social ocassion and a fantastic networking opportunity for people working within civil engineering, telecomms engineering/fibre and highways related fields.
Based over a two day stay at the venue, places are expected to fill up quickly for this event, so applications are advised to register as soon as possible.
Throughout the golf break there are a series of competitions, complete with all-inclusive food and drinks and entertainment from a sporting celebrity in the evening and a sporting prize auction which will raise money for Magpas, John Henry Group’s partner charity.
Last year, more than 40 golfers played, enjoyed two rounds of golf at the venue and the company of former Burnley FC and Wolves footballer Steve Kindon, who recounted his memories of playing alongside Manchester United Legend George Best, as part of the after dinner entertainment, with signed prizes and merchandise from the Rugby World Cup, Ryder Cup and Premier League up for grabs in the charity auction.
This year’s event takes place on June 7 and 8. John Henry Group covers the costs of entry, stay and food and beverages throughout the course of the event.
