Steve Jordan, a close friend of Tami Brown who died in July from cancer, is putting on a big charity golf day to raise £5,000 to help one of her favourite charities.
Tami’s Wish, an organisation set up by friends and family of Tami Brown, a Swindon woman who sadly passed away after an eight year battle with cancer, is calling upon passionate golfers to support their cause.
The event, which will be held at Wrag Barn Golf Club in Highworth, will take place on 1 November 2012 and will invite golfing enthusiasts from across the county to compete in a charity tournament to help raise money for Tami’s Wish and Yes to Life.
Tami’s Wish was initially created by Tami herself to raise funds to try alternative cancer treatments to extend her life.
Yes to Life, the other charity that the golf day is fundraising for, offers support to people with cancer who want to take a proactive role in their treatment.
The event has been organised by fundraiser extraordinaire Steve Jordan, who has previously raised thousands for charities like the Prospect Hospice in Swindon. It is set to raise a huge amount towards their goal of £50,000 in memory of Tami.
Companies can sponsor a hole, or golf enthusiasts can still sign up a team and take part.

Steve shares his memories of Tami:
"I met Tami in about 2001 when she joined the team of Party Hosts at Megabowl. Everyone was drawn to her as she was so friendly and always smiling. She was great at her job especially when she was hosting the children’s parties.
From Megabowl we both worked at Eros nightclub where again it was just one laugh after another and again as at Megabowl with her amazing personality she was liked by everyone. Then for Tami it was Australia where it was more difficult for us to stay in contact.
Knowing that Tami was in remission for so long made it harder to take in, when after bumping into her in Asda, she told me that she was having an operation as the cancer had returned. I didn’t know what to say and I told Tami this. In true Tami style she gave me a hug and told me that it would all be ok with a big smile on her face…. Surely this should have been the other way around??!! But that was Tami…. Always looking out for others before she worried about herself.
When given the news for the third time she was still determined to ensure that it was not going to affect her doing what she wanted to do. When talking to Tami she would be smiling and explaining in detail her next adventure as if she didn’t have a care in the world. She never gave up and to see Tami doing events to encourage and inform others proved yet again that she was putting others before herself.
For the last 5 years there has not been anyone past or present who has been more inspirational to me than Tami and in my eyes there never will be. To witness what she achieved and is still achieving now is simply incredible and I am so proud to call her my friend."
