Charity Golf Classic for the Paul Southgate Research Fund
Last weekend, Jamie participated in the Charity Golf Classic for the Paul Southgate Research Fund at Parque da Floresta in Portugal.

Some information about the event:

This year it was held in aid of the Paul Southgate Research Fund. The fund was established in memory of Paul, a former president of Parque da Floresta, who sadly passed away in June 2008. The charity is dedicated to raising vital funds for research into head and neck cancer and cancers affecting children and young adults. These are cancer types that are significantly underfunded and poorly studied compared to other cancers.

The prestigious golfing event was a fantastic way to enjoy one of Portugal’s finest golf courses while raising essential funds. Golf enthusiasts socialised and played alongside celebrities from the world of sport and entertainment in the four day programme and two-day golf competition from Thursday 9th – Sunday 12th July. The competition consisted of 17 teams of three players, each joined by a different celebrity each day. The winners of the Charity Golf Classic 2009 were Johnson Fitness, the reigning champions. The team of Jamie Burton, Craig Young and Thomas Maher were captained by legendary footballer Steve Bull MBE.

Celebrities who attended included actor and funny man Bradley Walsh, TV presenter Ben Shephard, ex footballer and TV presenter Bob Wilson OBE, actors Jamie Bamber, Colin Salmon and Johnny Briggs MBE, Rugby World Cup winner Kyran Bracken MBE, and singer Gareth Gates - to name but a few.

The full story can be found at The Portugal News Online.

The entire event was filmed by Sky Sports and will be broadcas July 28th and 29th on Sky Sports 1, 2 and 3.

You should post this on battlestar_blog and ask if someone can tape it and upload it. There's over 3,000 members on there and there has got to be someone that will be willing to do it.

Since this is a charity sporting event rather than a film or TV show I'm less worried about copyright issues, but I'm still hesitant to ask for someone to upload it on a public forum. But, if you say it's OK, I'm willing to give it a shot.

I second the motion. Make it a members-only post, that way it can't be seen by random interlopers with copyright sticks up their bums. ;)
