Claire and Stuart Domville held a fundraising Celebrity Golf Day and Sportsman’s Dinner in memory of their daughter Jenny, and the event raised over £40,000 for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. 

Claire and Stuart decided to fundraise for the charity because Jenny sadly died of acute myeloid leukaemia aged just 21 years old. The whole event was a great success, and Kevin Keegan kindly offered his support as the guest speaker in the evening and captained one of the celebrity golf teams during the day.

Claire and Stuart said: “We recently, so very sadly, lost our beloved daughter Jenny to leukaemia at only 21 years of age. Out of this terrible tragedy, in the hope that one day the fight against leukaemia can be won and other family’s suffering can be prevented, we organised a Celebrity Golf Day and Sportsman’s Dinner".  

The Jenny Domville Golf Day was held on Thursday 11 October at Mere Golf & Country Club and it was a fantastic fundraising success. Staurt, Claire and their son Matthew presented Catriona Tait, Regional Manager North at the charity, with a cheque for the £40,093.00 raised on Friday 21st December. This donation will make a terrific contribution to our research taking place in the North of England and throughout the UK.
