I'm Taking it On for Pancreatic Cancer UK


Nigel Jibson is playing 24 different golf courses in 24 hours to raise vital funds for research into Pancreatic Cancer and to raise awareness.

I have been living with pancreatic cancer since my shock diagnosis in March of this year. With the unwavering support of my wonderful wife and family and excellent medical treatment I have undergone now six cycles of chemotherapy and am currently feeling well ( despite side effect such as sepsis and a blood clot! ). One of the many activities I have been able to enjoy over the last few months is playing nine holes of golf at my home club Harewood Downs near Amersham .  I am also enjoying dog walks, going out to eat and several short breaks in the UK.

As a keen golfer it seems like a good idea to take on this Golf Challenge which I will do on Thursday October 28th and Friday October 29th.  As I am not Superman and due to the reduced daylight hours I will endeavour to play one hole at each course over 24 daylight hours in my local area of South Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and South Hertfordshire.

If you would like to support me with my Challenge and donate to this toughest to diagnose but sadly poorly funded cancer , please visit my Just Giving page and give whatever you can.

My thanks go to the golf courses for their kind cooperation and my helpers on the day.

As we say in my family, keep on keeping on!

My Updates

A different type of challenge

Unfortunately, the week after completing my golf challenge I was admitted to Wexham Park hospital with an infection. I spent 5 weeks in hospital having very good care and treatment. The infection is proving very tricky to beat and now I am at home having care in the community. Things are stable. 

It never rains but it pours! 
Thank you to all! X

More rain than shine on Day 2 but so pleased to have accomplished my golfing challenge! Massive thank you to my wife Alison for her constant help throughout and daughters cheering me on. Thanks also to my local supporters during the day and those who joined me for a celebratory drink after the final hole. The orange juice went down well! 

Day One - smashed it

Back home, tired but proud after a very enjoyable day! 14/24 courses completed - starting at Harewood Downs at 8:30am and finishing at Moor Park Golf Club in semi darkness. Brilliant courses and wonderful support from my fantastic golfing friends Alan, Ken & Kingsley. Looking forward to Day 2 - bring it on rain or shine! 

An early par for Nige

Golf Challenge starts well on my 2nd hole of the day, the lovely water hole par 3 
14th at Oakland Park. Tap in par.
