John Pool's Golf Challenge

One of Amref’s longest-standing donors, John Pool, is setting off on an ambitious golf challenge on Tuesday 16th July 2024playing two rounds of golf without assistance in one day at the age of 85!

John has supported Amref for almost 30 years, during which he has raised and donated almost £90,000. He has the ambitious goal to take this to £100,000 through this challenge! He is working hard independently to raise £5,000 and we, with your help, would love to raise the final £5,000. Help John reach his goal and ultimately bring about lasting health change in Africa.

All donations raised during this exciting golf challenge will be put straight into action to support Amref’s health work in communities across the African continent.

What John Pool Says

“I’ve been involved with Amref Health Africa for almost thirty years both in fundraising and in serving on the UK Board. During that period, I have raised/donated almost £90,000.

Having lived in and visited Africa many times, I am acutely aware of the continent’s profound need for the services Amref delivers in medical provision, training of health workers and overall health awareness. It is also a fine advocate for the cessation of the practice of Female Genital Mutilation or Cutting (FGM/C) which it is achieving through effective dialogue with community and village leaders.

I am undertaking a challenge to generate additional funding support. I am dedicating myself to walking and playing 36 holes unaided on my club’s hilly course – Temple Golf Club at Hurley. I intend to play without rest or respite and with the moral support of my wife and son. At the age of 85, this is sufficiently daunting and might, as an appeal, be regarded as my Last Hurrah.

I will regard all donations as only being honoured by my completing the challenge in its entirety and my family will be witness as to my doing so. I hope you will be inspired to support Amref’s invaluable work.”
