John Andrew PGA professional, and owner of John Letters Golf Limited, said, “My great grandfather John Thomas Andrew fought in World War I and was of the lucky ones to survive. The Royal British Legion has long been one of my favourite charities and we have made donations in the past.

“However, as we have both reached a landmark of 90 years together this year, we have decided to make a donation on all sales for a period of a month from Remembrance Day. This way we hope to raise thousands of pounds which will help support the current and ex-service community.”
