Sponsored by EFG International, the Pro-Am is now in its 4th year and has been an outstanding success. This year the event takes place at the Foxhills Club and Resort on September 9th. A team of three amateurs will play with a professional for super prizes. Following the golf, a Gala Dinner will be held at the Foxhill Resort, with entertainment and a first class auction.

Not for the faint-hearted, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the adrenalin of a bobsleigh run. Four of you will travel to Innsbruck, the venue of both the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympics (Franz Klammer won here – remember him!).

Lee will video each ride using an on-board camera to provide you with a fabulous memento of the day. In addition, the lucky lot winner will receive a signed Team GB Bobsleigh Race Helmut as a further reminder of a great day out.

The Innsbruck run is adjacent to some of the finest ski slopes in Europe so how about combining this with a family skiing holiday?

This May Be the First Time You Will Want A White And Gold Suit!

2012 witnessed the incredible staging of the London Olympics, an event that will be remembered for a lifetime by all those participating or attending. On July 27, 2012, Sir Chris Hoy led Team GB into the Olympic Stadium. All GB athletes wore white and gold suits – these were only issued to athletes and the GB delegation and are totally unique.

We have one of these suits. With exquisite detailing in the design, this fabulous outfit is sure to be something that is much sought after in the years to come – even if perhaps not something for casual wear at your local!

The suit has never been worn. It comes with its existing labels and its original packaging. For those who could be tempted to slip it on, the suit includes an XL jacket, an XL shirt, 36 inch shorts and size 11 shoes.

This is a totally unique collectors item from the most successful Team GB in over 100 years – a must have.
