Anne Williams memorial golf day returns to support Liverpool Sunflowers cancer charity

By Dan Kay

Amateur golfers are set to tee off again in memory of courageous Hillsborough campaigner Anne Williams.

The ninth memorial charity golf day in honour of the late Formby mum will take place at Huyton and Prescot Golf Club next Friday, 17th September.

The annual event, postponed last year due to the pandemic, returns to honour Anne’s memory following her death in 2013 after years of campaigning for her 15-year-old son Kevin and the 97 Liverpool supporters killed in 1989 by raising funds for worthy causes across Merseyside.

This year's chosen charity is Aigburth-based Liverpool Sunflowers, a cancer support charity offering all levels of support to people in need, while collections will also be taken for the Fans Supporting Foodbanks campaign.

Following the golf competition which will see 76 golfers competing for variety of prizes, a sell-out evening event featuring live music will take place with a blind auction being held for a range of golf and football prizes to raise much-needed funds for this year’s chosen beneficiaries.

Ste Martin, part of the organising team behind the golf day, said: “The event goes from strength to strength and has surpassed all expectations again this year, we’re really looking forward to another brilliant day and night in memory of a truly special lady.”

A mural depicting Mrs Williams created by renowned Merseyside artist Paul Curtis was recently unveiled close to Liverpool’s Anfield ground.

An ITV drama and documentary about Mrs Williams’ relentless battle to uncover the truth about Hillsborough is set to air in the new year.
