ROBERT SANTA Ponsa resident Robert Winsor has been awarded the M.B.E. for services to disabled children in Majorca. The award, which Winsor said yesterday he is delighted and over-the-moon about could not have been announced at a better time. This year he celebrated his 25th anniversary charity golf tournament which raised 156'000 euros for underpriviliged children in Majorca. Over the past 25 years, Winsor has held a total of 15 celebrity charity golf tournaments, eight in England and seven since he moved to Majorca nine years ago. He has now raised over 1.200.000 euros (net) for disabled and needy children in Britain and here in the Balearics. I was also very surprised when I was informed of this great honour, I never knew Britons abroad could receive such honours, he said yesterday prior to teeing off in a golf tournament on the island of Jersey. I am thrilled but the honour is not only for me, it is also recognises the very hard work and dedication my team of assistants have put into to organising the golf courses in Majorca, added. Probably most important is his partner Maria Laserne who is currently in touch with the ten Majorcan charities the money will be going to this year to discover what they need most. The Robert Winsor charity golf tournaments are now one of the biggest fund raising events in Europe and he admitted that he was thinking of bowing out this year. It's very tiring organising these events and I thought the 25th anniversary would have been a good point to stop. But, I can't now, we're now already starting to plan next year's - in honour of the M.B.E, he said yesterday. Over the past nine years, Winsor has changed the lives of hundreds of disabled and underpriviliged children. We decided to start helping as many other charities as possible because of the huge amounts of money being raised. This year the money is also going to children with down syndrome, autism and the homeless as well as the disabled, he explained. The fruits of his first Majorca tournament at the Real Golf de Bendindat, was a fleet of specially built electric wheelchairs for the severely handicapped. Since then, the charity golf tournaments have helped to provide a total of 79 wheelchairs, re-equip care homes, start an ever-growing fleet of customised mini-buses (Winsor has provided seven so far), provide vital disabled lifting equipment for swimming pools and bathrooms, toys, special gymnasiums, walking machines, medicine and clothes for abandoned children, special cancer treatment for an eight-year-old boy, water wheelchairs for swimming pools and the beach, hydraulic shower beds and mobile cranes to help lift disabled children into the baths and their beds. What is more, Winsor has established a dedicated group of top British celebrities and sporting personalities who return year after year to lend their support to his event. Jasper Carrott, Robert Powell, Jimmy Hill, Jess Conrad, Lance Percival, Kenny Lynch, who played in his first tournament in England in 1980, Stan Boardman, John Lodge and Mike England are just a few who have helped Robert Winsor bring a smile to the faces of hundreds of underpriviliged Majorcan children and their families. Real Bendinat golf director Jorge Pando proclaimed at this year's event that Winsor deserves a medal how right he was.
