Captain of Redditch Golf Club raises hundreds in memory of Ollie

Harry Leach 20th Jan, 2020

THE CAPTAIN of Redditch Golf Club raised a staggering £17,750 for road safety charity Brake throughout 2019.


The 19-year-old was killed in 2017 after a woman crashed into his car along the A4023 Coventry Highway in Redditch.

She was later jailed after being found guilty of careless driving.

Bob, who is a close family friend of the Sellers, presented the cheque at the ‘Brake Ball’ in Sutton Coldfield last month.

A spokesperson from the golf club said: “Our members and especially our captains should be very proud.

“The money has set a new record for the amount raised for a captain’s charity in one year.

“Thank you to all who donated.”
