The Tim Smith Memorial Golf and Community Day

Friday 27th September 2019 at Lincoln Golf Club, Torksey

In aid of St. Barnabas Hospice

The Pledge

Our dear friend, lifelong Lincoln City fan Tim Smith was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer last summer. Tim sadly passed away shortly after his beloved Imps gained promotion as League 2 Champions.

St Barnabas Hospice, a local charity, organised a day out for him with manager Danny Cowley and the players at Sincil Bank last September when the club played MK Dons. Tim led the team out and had an amazing day. In his words "I was like a kid in a sweet shop".

Tim and his family kindly invited his friends to join him after the game in the VIP lounge. We all had such a memorable time together and simply asked Tim if there was anything he needed or if there was anything that we could do to help.

For those that knew Tim, no-one would be surprised at the answer as he always put others before himself. He simply asked that his friends raise some money for St Barnabas Hospice so that others might have the same great care that he recieved.

We, his friends, pledged to make this happen........ but where to start? Thankfully we know some absolutely fabulous people, and the cause was taken up by colleagues from Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust. We are all so very grateful to them in helping us execute Tim's wish.

Now watch Tim's video, where Tim will explain why St Barnabas has been so important for him and his family and along with Danny Cowley, why connecting people is so important for us all, including the players of Lincoln City Football Club!

The Social Zone


Danny Cowley

Although Danny is supporting this event and sends his best wishes, he has sadly moved on to manage Huddersfield Town in the Championship. With it being only his second week in charge of the Terriers he will not be attending. On behalf of all Imps fans we wish him every success and would like to thank both him and Nicky for creating some very special memories! We extend a warm Lincolnshire welcome to Michael Appleton as Danny's successor, who starts work at Sincil Bank this week. UTMI!


Caddies for sale

LCHS volunteers, under the stewardship of Katie and Angela, are kindly running a caddy for sale service for golfers for the day with all proceeds going to St Barnabas. It will cost £10 for the day for each caddy. We did try to get Bill Murray and Chevy Chase but they were more expensive and curiously had prior engagements.


Conjurer and Illusionist

A golfing magician? Surely not? Be amazed at the table magic, sleight of hand and illusions from Lincolnshire's very own Mr. Magic. Maybe he can make those double bogeys disappear from my scorecard?
