Porsche Centre Reading sponsor ‘The Big 60 Golf & Spa Day’

28/4/2015

Porsche Centre Reading are proud to announce the sponsorship of The Big 60 Golf & Spa Day taking place at the iconic Stoke Park on Monday 11th May. The brainchild of Cancer survivor Mike Housley ‘The Big 60’ is a charity golf competition in aid of Action for A-T and the Oxford Cancer Centre.

Fortunately Mike is now in remission after battling with cancer for the past 18 months and has chosen to raise money for cancer medical research.

Action for AT raises money to fund medical research for the neurodegenerative condition, Ataxia-Telangiectasia. A-T is relatively unknown and unfortunately there is no cure or even a treatment to slow down the progression of the disease. A-T starts in early childhood and causes severe multi-system disability and premature death.

The charity looks to increase awareness and progress medical advancements to help children who suffer from A-T to live longer and healthier lives.

Porsche Centre Reading will have a large display of 911’s at the event and have sponsored a Porsche Boxster 2.7 prize for a hole- in-one competition.  Additionally there will also be many other fundraising activities during the event, including the opportunity to win a Porsche Driving Experience at the Porsche Experience Centre, Silverstone.

Sean Wilson, Centre Principal of Porsche Centre Reading “Porsche Centre Reading are thrilled to have the opportunity to support two very worthy causes. We are looking forward to what promises to be a great day at the magnificent Stoke Park”

Stoke Park has a historic heritage and is home to one of the finest Championship golf courses in the country. Founded in 1908, Stoke Park was Britain’s first ever country club and now boasts a luxury 5-star hotel, spa, and offers state-of-the-art sporting and leisure facilities. Porsche Centre Reading formed a partnership with Stoke Park in 2014.
