Former Formula One world champions Damon Hill was at East Devon Golf Club, Budleigh Salterton, for an event to raise funds for two Down’s Syndrome charities
Former Formula One world champion Damon Hill OBE was one of the golfers teeing off in Budleigh to raise money for charity.
Some 12 teams, including the 1996 formula one world champion, took part in the friendly competition held jointly by the Down’s Syndrome Assocation and Down Syndrome International.
Teams and guest were also joined at the event by Damon Hill’s championship winning Williams Renault car.
After a full round of gold there was an intimate supper, auction and prize draw in the evening.
Michael Caines MBE, of Lympstone Manor, was also in attendance after earlier presenting Damon Hill with a cheque for £15,000 raised for the two charities.
The cash was raised through auctions, raffles and generous donations at a special evening at Lympstone Manor to celebrate 40 years of Williams Racing earlier this year.
Organisers thanked everyone who attended the event as well as companies which sponsored some of the holes.
