The charity’s president will embark on a fundraising challenge


The president of Pied Piper Appeal plans to play four rounds of golf in one day this summer to raise money to buy a minibus for sick and disabled children.

Nick Broady, managing director of Avenue Cars in Gloucester, is already in training for the challenge on Sunday June 19.

He plans to play at four Gloucestershire courses – Rodway Hill Golf Course, Highnam; Gloucester Golf Club; Lilley Brook Golf Club and Brickhampton Court.

Nick, who plays with a handicap of seven, hopes to be joined by club captains on the front nine and some Gloucestershire rugby celebrities – including Phil Vickery, Billy Twelvetrees and Charlie Sharples – for the back nine.

“I have loads of buddies who say they’re going to caddy for me, but I have to walk on my own,” he said.

Nick hopes to raise enough money to buy a minibus to send sick and disabled children to activities around the county. He has set himself a fundraising goal of £10,000.

As it will soon be the longest day, he intends to leave at dawn to play the 72 holes. “As soon as I see, I will go,” he said.

“It’s my 60th birthday the following Sunday, so it’s 72 holes at 60 to back up 30 years as a Pied Piper.” .

Nick is a member of Brickhampton Golf Club and a former captain and chairman.
