Leukaemia Research was established in 1960 and is the only national research charity solely devoted to leukaemia and related blood disorders in both adults and children. The charity is committed to improving treatments, finding cures and learning how to prevent leukaemia, Hodgkin’s and other lymphomas, myeloma and other related blood disorders, which are diagnosed in 24,500 people in the UK every year. Its work depends entirely on voluntary donations.
Sir Ian remarked:-
“The support demonstrated by CGTV Games Ltd. as the Presenting Sponsor and Java Trading Company as an Event Sponsor of the final leg of my Charity Golf Series is wonderful. Desert Springs Resort & Golf Club is a place close to my own heart and what I consider to be the best family retreat in Europe! The commitment of my sporting celebrity friends to give up their time and the players that have entered the event will guarantee, great golf, great fun, great friendship and most of all, the raising of those much needed funds for the Charity of which I am President, Leukaemia Research.”
Desert Springs Director of Golf, Simon Coaker commented: –
“Confirmation of the growing maturity of the Desert Springs Resort & Golf Club has further been demonstrated by the positive response received from entrants wishing to participate in the event itself which has been overwhelming, with demand outstripping supply! There is no equal to Desert Springs in terms of the quality of the Indiana course and the warmth of welcome offered to our guests and the event promises to be a huge success!”
