Rob Marsh from Harleyford Golf Club, Marlow, has planned a fundraising day on June 13 to in aid of Alzheimer’s Research UK, the country’s leading dementia research charity.

Rob and his dedicated team aim to raise £100,000 for Alzheimer’s Research UK, the charity working to revolutionise the way dementia is treated, diagnosed and prevented.

Dementia affects almost one million people in the UK alone and has a huge impact on families. 
It is most commonly caused by Alzheimer’s disease.

Rob was inspired to organise the charity golf day after both his mother and grandmother were diagnosed with dementia.  

The charity day is being planned to be a fun, relaxed day, it will see 24 teams playing and even the chance to win a Porsche with a successful hole-in-one.

He said: “Alzheimer’s is a very emotional thing to deal with. 

“When our loved ones pass away, we don’t see them anymore, but we always remember the good times. 

“With Alzheimer’s we lose the person we love a lot earlier, but the shell of that person is still with us, confused, fragile and not the person that we remember from times before. 

“It is an incredibly sad process for friends and family to observe and one I am experiencing first-hand. 

“So, what I am looking for is, all my friends, family and the local community to come together on June 13, and support our golf day at Harleyford.

“It is a golf day but one that is not just about the golf, it is about the charity, it is about seeing each other, making memories and having lots of fun.”

Jess Jenkins Regional Fundraising Officer for Buckinghamshire at Alzheimer’s Research UK, said: “We’re so grateful to Rob and the team at Harleyford for supporting Alzheimer’s Research UK. 

“If nothing changes, one in two of us will be directly affected by dementia – either by caring for someone with the condition, developing it ourselves, or both. 

“Fantastic fundraising efforts like this will help us get closer to a cure for people with dementia and their loved ones. 

“We wish Rob and everyone at Harleyford Golf Club the best of luck!”
