The Gallagher UK Golf Championship Day was filled with great humour, and camaraderie and enjoyed a day full of good golf, bad golf, awful shots, over trees, under trees and wombling free (probably) and creating memorable moments.

Paul Brown, CEO of YMCA Leicestershire said, โ€œThe commitment of people to return next year speaks volumes about the eventโ€™s success and its support for one of Leicestershireโ€™s oldest charities, the YMCA. So thank you to everyone for making this event a triumph for YMCA Leicestershire! We look forward to working with Gallagher UK to making an even bigger and better event next year!โ€
