TWO South West children’s charities are set to benefit from a total of £11,300 thanks to the PGA regional captain’s charity fundraising.
Andrew March, captain of the PGA in England & Wales (South West) from Brean Golf Club, and regional secretary Glenn Ross from Minehead, jointly set up Tee Up 4 Tots.
Both had personal reasons for raising as much money as possible for their nominated charities, CLAPA (Cleft Lip and Palate Association), the South West Cleft Team and Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton’s Somerset Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
March’s son Logan was born with a cleft lip and palate and has been receiving treatment at Bristol Children’s Hospital, along with significant support from both CLAPA and the South West Cleft Team.

Ross’s son Harry was born prematurely at just 2lb 10oz and required round-the-clock care at Somerset Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for eight weeks at Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton.
The majority of the funds were raised at the Tee Up 4 Tots Pro-Am, held in August last year at Enmore Park Golf Club where over £6,700 was raised.
