Charity Fund Raising


In 2004 Roger Marris (Rog) was diagnosed with an aggressive form of incurable Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and has set out to raise a minimum of £10,000 with the intention of

  1. Raise awareness of blood cancers
  2. To encourage visitors to the website to register as potential bone marrow donors
  3. To raise money through sponsorship for and involvement in a sporting challenge
  4. The charities chosen are the Leukaemia Research Fund and the Anthony Nolan Fund

We feel privileged to support him by giving him one nights accommodation as he travels between Scarborough and North Norfolk.


Mission accomplished! Rog has now completed this challenge and has surpassed his original target by raising more than £25,000 for charity.

With only 15 minutes to spare, Rog putted out on the final (360th) hole at Wentworth to complete his round the UK challenge. Please view the film clip below of Rog, summarising his thoughts about the challenge.

Branston Hall Hotel, once a stately home for the Melville family, is now a beautifully restored building housing 53 luxurious guest bedrooms making it this fine country house Hotel. Situated just three miles south of the historic city of Lincoln, the hotel sits within 88 acres of stunning parkland and Lakes. Branston Hall is the ideal venue to get the most of a city break whilst also enjoying wide open spaces, tranquil surroundings and award winning cuisine.
