We raised £25,000 for Sue Ryder!

Dan Wurzal and his team embarked on a very tough challenge in support of the Sue Ryder charity to walk the Ribble Way Walk.

Out of 20 teams, only 7 completed the challenge, which raised over £25,000 for the Sue Ryder charity. After a gruelling 72 miles and over 25 hours of walking we finally arrived at the finish line. It was probably the one of the toughest physical challenges I have ever done but was well worth it.

Sue Ryder Charity Walk

Simpson Cup

Robert Kennedy was fortunate to represent The Personal Finance Society at Royal Birkdale Golf Club, which held the British Open in July this year. (this is a huge thing/honour for any golfer) he was playing in the Simpson Cup (see below). The personal Finance Society were co sponsors of the event and along with Forces Money Plan assist injured servicemen with their financial affairs of which I am proud to be on the register.

The Simpson Cup is an annual tournament between teams of 13 injured Servicemen and veterans from the USA and their British counterparts. The Ryder Cup-style tournament showcases the unique position of golf as one of the few sports where players of all skills and abilities can play together on a level playing field, because of the official golf handicap system.

The tournament is named after its founder, John Simpson, the former Senior Vice President of International Management Group (IMG), who has only one fully-functioning leg as a result of suffering from polio as a child. During his time at IMG, John managed elite sportsmen such as Sir Nick Faldo, Bernhard Langer, Greg Norman, Vijay Singh, and Lord Sebastian Coe.
