KAWASAKI BACKS LINEKAR CHARITY BID

 

Kawasaki is teaming up with Gary Linekar to support an exciting, one-off, millennium golf charity bid to raise funds for the Leukaemia CARE Society.

The former England soccer star and current BBC television personality has invited every golf club captain throughout the UK to join him as a member of the Millennium Captains' Club.

The club will be in existence for just one year only and is open to all golf club captains, mens and ladies, who take up the Millennium Challenge to raise some money during their year of office in 2000.

The top five fundraising captains from each of the four home nations - England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, will then be invited to enter a team of four into a Four Nations Championship to be staged at the Warwickshire Golf Club on 7 September 2000.

Each team appearing in the event finale will be led by a celebrity captain with Linekar, an avid golfer, captaining the England team.

Those taking part get the opportunity to participate in a one-off, high profile, event and represent their country as well as support an extremely worthwhile cause.

"The Millennium Captaincy is unique - I want to help commemorate it by doing something worthwhile and long lasting" explained Gary Linekar

In addition to the Millennium Captains Trophy, which will be awarded to the captain of the winning team taking part in the challenge final, all participating clubs will receive a clubhouse plaque to commemorate the event.

Star prize for the captain raising the most money for the charity will be a fabulous Kawasaki Mule utility vehicle worth £5,000. Generously donated by Kawasaki UK, this highly prized vehicle will go to the leading fundraising captains' club.

The Leukaemia CARE Society exists to provide care, support and information to those people whose lives have been devastated by Leukaemia.

Golf Club captains wishing to participate in the Millennium Captains' Club should call 0118 9011118.
