Golf in full swing at the Abbey
HE was arrested for his ‘crime’ but Richard Grey was happy to be in cuffs for charity after playing golf on Cambridge United’s pitch!
Grey took part in charity campaign Jail & Bail for Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT), where a full investigation takes place after being cuffed for a playful stunt.
In order to be released from the long arm of the law, ‘criminals’ are required to raise £500 towards the charity as part of their bail sum.
And after Cambridge chairman Dave Doggett took part 18 months ago, the League Two club were keen to get involved again.
Grey said: “The club were really helpful and so were the police, who did it all in their own time. The charity works alongside the force.
“I’m not a golfer and I had the Cambridge groundsman keeping a very close eye on what I was doing. I never actually struck any golf balls.”
The money raised goes to the children’s cancer ward at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
