Hello all, 
It’s very short notice but as this is my off week, I would love to try and raise some money for my good friend Charlie Crosby.
Please see below....

On Thursday morning, Charlie collapsed and was rushed to Barnet hospital by ambulance where they did a CT scan and found a bleed on his brain. They put him in an induced coma and rushed him to London Neurological Hospital where he has sent straight down for emergency surgery.

After 7 hours of surgery Charlie is now stable and slowly being brought out of the induced coma.
He had an AVM which ruptured deep in the left side of the brain. This is a condition that you are born with and you will not even know until this happens. It can happen to anyone of us at any time.
The staff have told us that Charlie is a real fighter and we are so proud of him. He is young and strong which will be in his favour but we still do not know how much damage has been done.

I am hoping that we can raise some money for Charlie and his family at this difficult time whether that be for train fares, hotels, private rehabilitation or whatever Charlie and his family need and want to put the money towards going forward.  They shouldn’t have to think about money at a time like this and it just proves how important life is and none of us know what is around the corner. 

On Monday June 9th, I will be playing 100 holes of golf at Beau Desert Golf Club starting at 6am and finishing whenever the 100 holes are complete. I was lucky to enough to meet this amazing family quite a few years ago at the European Father and Son Golf Championships where it’s fair to say Charlie and his dad Lee scored a few more points than me and my Dad!! Charlie helped me get through 1st stage of European Tour School this past year by caddying and he’s just one of them people who brings life to the room and is impossible not to love. He’s always smiling and I want to help get that smile back on his face as soon as possible. Whatever we can raise is a bonus and will help towards this family so please donate whatever you can.

Thank you!
