Colin Montgomerie Hides Treasured Assets for Future Generations to Seek Out
Colin Montgomerie is reported to have hidden several of his treasured assets, the golfing memorabilia for future generations to seek out, as he has signed several of his prized assets and put them in a ‘commemorative time caspsule’ for the next phase of work at a cancer center in honor of his mother.
Also, he anticipates that by the time the capsule is uncovered, there would be a cure for cancer, and planning permission has been given for the Elizabeth Montgomerie building, a cancer centre operated by the Maggie’s charity, at Monklands Hospital in Airdrie, North Lanarkshire.
Maggie's Chief Executive Laura Lee said: “This is a really lovely opportunity for us to celebrate the support from Colin and his foundation. Our interim facility is currently working to capacity and it is fantastic to see the plans today and the site location for the new centre”.
However, Montgomerie joined supporters of his charity, the Elizabeth Montgomerie Foundation and cancer charity, Maggie's at Monklands Hospital in Airdrie, which is the location of the new Maggie's cancer care centre, and his mother died of lung cancer in 1991.
Moreover, he visited and donated 2 special mementos from the European Ryder Cup team at Celtic Manor last October, along with one of the polo shirts he had on, as captain of the winning side and a ‘signed official programme of the event’.
