Thomas Bjørn, professional golf player and friend of the BMW brand,
embarked on a four-day charity walk to raise funds for UNICEF and the
Golf Foundation as part of the European Tour’s #GolfforGood initiative.
Inspired by the fundraising exploits of Sir Tom Moore during the COVID-19 lockdown, Bjørn set off from the European Tour’s Headquarters at Wentworth Club in Surrey to the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, carrying the Ryder Cup for the entirety of the 130 mile walk. He was supported throughout the journey by a Ryder Cup branded BMW X5 which provided supplies through the endurance test.
To date Thomas’ fundraising efforts have raised £35,000 for UNICEF and the Golf Foundation, and further donations can be made here: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Wentworth2Wales
