A host of sporting legends took part in a charity golf day at The Springs on 7th June, which raised over £16,500 for the mentoring charity ReachOut.


14 teams took part in the Texas Scramble competition and they were joined by:

  • Will Greenwood, a member of the 2003 Rugby World Cup winning squad who achieved 55 caps for England;
  • Zinzan Brooke, the former New Zealand rugby union player who is widely considered to be one of the best number eights to have ever played for New Zealand;
  • Matthew Hoggard – the former England cricketer who holds the impressive acclaim of being the 6th highest wicket-taker in England's test match history, with 248 wickets from 67 matches;
  • Nick Gubbins – a cricketing sporting legend of the future who was instrumental in Middlesex’s 2016 Championship triumph and is on the verge of making it into the England squad;
  • Monty Panesar – the former England cricketer who played 50 tests for his country, taking an impressive 167 wickets;
  • Scott Quinnell – the former Welsh rugby international who played for Wales 52 times as well as for the Barbarians and the British Lions.


ReachOut UK is a mentoring charity working with young people which aims to raise aspirations and help them grow in character and attainment.  ReachOut’s activities are designed to tackle educational inequality in young people from disadvantaged communities.  ReachOut partners with schools to support young people aged 9 to 16, who are referred to them because of either low academic attainment, low confidence, behaviour issues, or because their teachers believe they would benefit from the support of a role model.
