Mark Cobb, owner of Myclean Sussex, has seen his charity golf days become so popular, his July event was oversubscribed, so he is planning another in September to raise more funds in 2022.
Mark said: “In 2011 my father Trevor passed away from pancreatic cancer. Since then I have been running charity golf days in his memory. This year was special as it was the 10th anniversary of my events This year I was fundraising for St Barnabas House but I have also raised money for the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund and Young Minds I have now raised just over £60,000 , which I’m really proud of.
The event took place at Mannings Heath Golf Club, near Horsham, on July 1, with 72 golfers playing across 18 teams.

Mark said: “It was a beautiful sunny day and the event had such a great atmosphere. I try to make sure my events are fun oriented. We had music on the first tee and a large inflatable golf/darts game. There was a charity raffle and auction and the player closest to the hole on the 10th hole won a meal for two at The Ivy.”
Trevor Cobb has died aged 61, just months after being diagnosed with cancer. He was a well-known and successful businessman, whose chain of six retail stores Tomorrow’s World rented and sold DVDs and computer games throughout Sussex.
Trevor was a keen golfer and played with an 18 handicap. He took Mark with him when he was little and taught him how to play when he was 20.
