WOKINGHAM’S Sue Robertson is one of four finalists in the running for England Golf’s Volunteer of the Year Award.

Mum-of-three Sue cares for her husband, Graeme, who suffers from multiple sclerosis while holding down a full-time job in IT.

But despite health problems of her own, Sue and Graeme founded the Disabled Golf Association which continues to go from strength to strength, with more than 50 golf events every year all over the country.

Sue takes on the bulk of the organisation, which includes tournaments at Sand Martins Golf Club in Wokingham.

One person who nominated her said: “Sue is the beating heart of the Disabled Golf Association and always has time for you as an individual.

“Sue provides a fabulous service which creates a family for all us disabled players in which playing is only a part.”

Another added: “She is the source of energy for hundreds of disabled golfers around England, including myself, and our lives would be considerably poorer without her efforts.”

The other finalists are Jean Hooper (Bramley GC), Richard Ward (Wrag Barn GC) and Jenny Winch (Test Valley GC).

The winner of the awards, sponsored by Players 1st, will be announced at the Royal Lancaster in London next month.

England Golf Chief Executive Nick Pink commented: “Congratulations to four truly remarkable people whose stories deserve to be told far beyond the golfing community.”
