We were thrilled to still be able to host the 2020 Tom Isaacs Charity Golf Day this year. Due to  COVID-19, this year’s event was adapted to fit government guidelines, and so took place over two days instead of one. On the 15 October, 19 golfers were split into five teams at Denham Golf Club in Buckinghamshire, while on the 22 October, 26 golfers were split into seven teams at Sandy Lodge Golf club in Hertfordshire to enjoy a round of golf in memory of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust’s late co-founder and President Tom Isaacs.

Team members arrived early in the morning to enjoy coffee and bacon rolls before playing fourball stableford with staggered tee times, all in a bid to win the ‘inspirational’ trophy, kindly donated by the ‘South Bank Surveyors’ Team. The day ended with a raffle.

Huge congratulations to Annapurna Recruitment, led by CPT Ambassador Charlie Appleyard, who won the tournament scoring 88 points at Sandy Lodge, retaining their title from the 2019 tournament. We would also like to congratulate the Winchmore Hill Sporting Club, who scored second place overall with 86 points at Denham the previous week.

CPT would like to thank everyone who made the Tom Isaacs Charity Golf Day a success this year. With thanks to long-term supporter and former CPT trustee, Rick Cawdron, a member of Denham Golf Club who helped us organise the event, and to our brilliant attendees who managed to raise over £2,500 for our ground-breaking research into a cure for Parkinson’s.

COVID-19 has had a significant impact on CPT. In 2020, 95% of our fundraising events have been cancelled or postponed and our funding decimated, and so we are hugely grateful to our supporters for allowing the Tom Isaacs Charity Golf Day to go ahead this year.
