Footballing Legends descend on Essex for Charity Event

By the Beresfords Marketing Team - 11th October 2011

Renowned footballing heroes and local businesses including Beresfords came together for a Charity Golf Day at Stock Brook Country Club in Stock, near Billericay.

The footballers taking part were led by England World Cup winners Martin Peters MBE and George Cohen as well as Ossie Ardiles, himself a World Cup winner with Argentina in 1978. Add goal keeping legend Pat Jennings, Cliff Jones, a member of the famous Spurs double winning side of the 1960’s, as well as more recent Tottenham stars John Lacey and Steve Sedgeley and Brian Dear and Andy Smillie both of whom carved their careers out in the claret and blue of London rivals West Ham and you have a formidable team sheet. As for their golfing skills, it’s fair to say they enjoyed mixed fortunes!

Both Pat and Steve played for the Beresfords teams and everyone enjoyed a round of golf on a superb Indian Summer day in the beautiful surroundings of the Country Club, followed by a sumptuous evening meal which ended with a much anticipated Charity auction. Auction items included a signed photograph of the 1966 world cup winning team which sold for over £1,000. The event itself raised in excess of £7,500 for the Recoil Twisters Trampoline Club.

The Club is raising money to build a dedicated centre for trampolining which will cater for all abilities and ages from grass roots to high performance with special provision for those with disabilities, including four sunken trampolines ideally suited for the very young and those with disabilities. The centre will also have a sensory room for use by people with disabilities before of after their session and a physio/first aid room. The expected cost for the facility is £750,000 and will be integrated into the existing Brentwood Centre. Martin Peters MBE is the patron of the club.

John Lineham, Director of Beresfords, who took part in the event commented: “Beresfords entered two teams and we had a fantastic day. I think it helped that both teams got to play with such great legends and having Pat Jennings on my team was certainly a talking point!”

“Beresfords is always proud to support local organisations and we had no hesitation in being part of this event. We are looking forward to helping with future fundraising events as the club strives to meet its fundraising total.”

Martin himself said “I’m delighted that in this difficult climate, companies such as Beresfords felt they could support Recoil in its fundraising efforts. The project will be a huge benefit to the community as a whole and those with special needs in particular”.
