Golf-nut Niall Horan tees up a fundraising boost for children’s cancer charity
NIALL HORAN has come with a 1D-erful idea to combine the two loves of his life — golf and music — to raise cash for a good cause.
The Irish singer will team up with his golf chum Justin Rose to put on a fundraising gala in aid of a children with cancer.
Niall and Olympic gold medallist Justin, 37, will host a pro-am golf tournament for the cause — and the Slow Hands chart-topper hopes to boost coffers further by performing at a star-studded private gig.
The 24-year-old told GP he couldn’t resist going another round with the Horan & Rose Fundraising Gala after the event netted a staggering £800,000 for good causes in 2016.
And he hopes celebrities will chip in to boost that total when the event tees off in Hertfordshire later this month. ‘I’m so excited to team up with Justin again for another Horan & Rose Gala Event,’ he said. ‘The first one was a simply amazing night and we raised a huge amount. This year we want to raise even more money for Cancer Research UK Kids and Teens. It’s a charity very close to my heart and I’m passionate about helping them.’ Niall’s sports management business, Modest Golf, will host the two-day gala.
