Since 2014, we’ve had the absolute pleasure of working alongside The Stiliyan Petrov Foundation. Following the success of last year’s Charity Golf Day, the Stiliyan Petrov Foundation are to host this year’s event at the Belfry once again on the 7th May in support of the Leukaemia and Blood Disease Research Appeal.

Stiliyan was diagnosed with acute leukaemia in 2012, but thankfully he finished his treatment and went into remission in 2015. Stiliyan was deeply touched by the support that was given to him from around the world, and together with his wife Paulina, established The Stiliyan Petrov Foundation in 2013.

The Foundation aims to revolutionise the way leukaemia and cancer are treated by supporting families and children going through the toughest times of their lives. As well as providing support, SPF also seeks to develop a safer, more practical and effective process for treatment, relapses and prevention of these illnesses.

Last year, Stiliyan and Paulina Petrov along with the rest of the Foundation teamed up with The Belfry Hotel and Resort and organised a golf tournament on the world famous Brabazon Golf Course, followed by an Evening Dinner with a 3-course meal, auction and raffle.

Last year’s golf day was such a success, the Foundation have decided to host the event again in May this year. The 2017 Charity Golf Day will encompass a game on the Brabazon course, with teams captained by numerous celebrities such as Martin O’Neill, Chris Sutton and Henrik Larsson. Celebrity guests attending will also include Wilfred Bouma, Gareth Barry, and James Collins. The golf tournament will then be followed by a three-course meal along with live entertainment.

With the support of sponsors and the general public for the Golf Day, the Foundation aims to raise funds to support paediatric oncology as well as life-saving drugs and treatment.

Companies are also invited to team up with SPF and sponsor a hole on the golf course on the day. Not only will sponsoring a hole put your company next to world-famous celebrities on an award-winning golf course, but each contribution will go towards aiding life-saving research, improved medical care and support for the families of those afflicted with cancer.

Marc Brooks, the Head of Golf Sales and Membership at the Belfry, said “We are honoured to once again be hosting The Stiliyan Petrov Foundation Golf Day. The Foundation set up by Stiliyan and Paulina has raised thousands of pounds to help others after being diagnosed with leukaemia.

“Last year’s event was a great success and we’re delighted to be part of such a great cause for a second year.”

Several years and hundreds (if not thousands) of bottles of Pepsi Max later, she now makes up part of our office’s “Content Corner” as a Social Media Account Manager, bringing together her social media knowledge combined with her writing skills.

With her impressive level of music knowledge, Jo can regularly name a song and tell you an unnecessary music fact in less than 3 seconds from a song starting. This often takes all the fun out of listening to the radio in the office, but it’s certainly a talent, nonetheless.
