With the tragic death of his Brother Adam in 2007, Stuart Millichip wanted to do something in his memory. In May 2010 he and 3 other committee members founded the Adam Millichip Memorial Golf Challenge, which in it's first year raised over 7000 pounds, which was donated to 2 local charities.

After the huge success of this project, the quiet whisper of more became a reality. Shortly after the golf day, Stuart approached the rest of the committee with the idea of a fully registered charity in memory of his brother. The Adam Millichip Foundation had been born.

The Adam Millichip Foundation was founded in November 2010 and has one goal. To provide financial support and assistance to disabled people who wish to participate in sports, with the aim of improving the quality of their lives.

The early days

In it's first year the charity held a cake sale, 2 skydives (9 divers), the second annual golf day, a sponsored bike ride from Holyhead to Barry Island, a guest speaker night with a celebrity prisoner of war, a race night and there was a 3 legged race held for us. A very successful first year. We also helped a whole collection of people into sports including some horse riding lessons, ski lessons, swimming sessions, rock climbing equipment and a few specially adapted bikes. 2011 was a special set of firsts for us and we would like to thank every single person that helped us along the way.

Moving on

2012 was a year for growth. We began 2012 with the Third Annual Adam Millichip Memorial Golf Challenge, on 11th May 2012. As usual this sold out within weeks, and over 200 golfers once again enjoyed a brilliant day of golf in aid of The Adam Millichip Foundation. The third day was crowned off with the attendance of former England and Wolves footballer Steve Bull, who played with Stuart and Mark Benbows team. We raised a lot of money that day. That was followed up quickly by newly reformed local band Total Recall, who kindly donated their time at The Bridge Hotel in Tenbury Wells by playing a 60s collection and The Shadows Tribute. The night was a success. The sister of one of our grantees ran the Atlantic Coast Challenge, which was 3 marathons over 3 days. She raised over £3000 in 1 weekend. We also held another Race Night, a Christmas fayre and another Skydive. So all in all, 2012 was a year of expanding, which included the addition of 2 new committee members, Scott and Fran. Let's not forget the most important bit! We were also able to support over 20 people, which was an increase from the previous year, including a few special bikes, horse riding lessons, swimming lessons, karate lessons and many more.
