Presenting the cheque to the Foundation, Steve Fyfe explained that the money had been generated through a golf event held in Spain in late October 2016. The Plaza Golf Society Members at the Plaza Golf Resort welcomed a number of Neil's close friends to their course to play for the Neil Fyfe Memorial Cup in a Match between the Members & Guests, with a fundraiser in aid of the Neil Fyfe Foundation a big element of the event.
Neil had been due to return from the States in October 2014 for a golfing holiday to catch-up with friends but was tragically killed in a road accident. His friends decided not to cancel the trip they had planned together and insted used the initial occassion to honour their friend. They have continued to honour Neil's memory by meeting in October for a golf trip annually but this Memorial Cup has taken that tradition to a new level, with the Society Members embracing the event to help raise funds for Neil's Foundation.
The Neil Fyfe Foundation has generated in excess of £15,000 to date.

Nov 2014 - Steve Fyfe, father of Neil Fyfe who died tragically whilst on his way to work at a New York State golf resort, handed over a cheque for £1800 that was raised by family, friends and colleagues of the talented North-East born caddie at his recent funeral.
Neil had been out in the States for a number of years where he was "following his dream" to be a caddie on the US Tour circuit. He had worked at various high-profile venues and had also caddied on several occasions for both Luke Donald and basketball star Michael Jordan.
The family decided that they wanted donations to go towards the development of young talent within the game that Neil loved and we are grateful that they chose Paul's Foundation as their nominated charity.
