Judas Priest guitar legend KK Downing recently hosted a celebrity golf tournament to raise funds for the Lord’s Taverners at Astbury Hall, near Bridgnorth.
The event was held on the grounds of his home located in Shropshire, England at Astbury Hall, where Downing designed and built the 18-golf course.
“Astbury Hall has been borne from my experiences on golf courses from around the world and I am fortunate enough to have played some of the finest the world has to offer and I feel privileged to have been able to create a property that encompasses all my cherished experiences,” Downing told The Shropshire Star.
Lord’s Taverners uses sport to enhance the prospects of disadvantaged and disabled young people. Among those who took part in support of the charity were: KK Downing; Ian Hill, Judas Priest bassist; Neal Radford, former England and Worcestershire cricketer; John Richards, former Wolves player; Steve Daley, former Wolves and Manchester City player, as well as golf professional Steven Carter.
