News Brief

Kimberlin Brown in South Africa for Project Golf 2014

Project Golf 2014 - a Women's World Cup of Golf initiative inspired by CEO Tania Fourie - was launched last month in George at Kingswood Golf Club. Fourie said the project aims to produce 2,014 young golfers, many of them girls from previously disadvantaged backgrounds, with official handicaps by 2014.

Former THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL and THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS star Kimberlin Brown, international ambassador for Project Golf 2014, launched the Kingswood chapter. Brown and her family have also been instrumental in fundraising for the project in America.

"I am absolutely thrilled to be back in South Africa launching the third chapter in this project. It is through such initiatives that the youth of today has something exciting and enjoyable to strive for."

HOLLYOAKS stars say goodbye
HOLLYOAKS gorgeous boys and girls took a break from filming to take over Chaya for a night. Dressed in their best glad rags, 150 guests headed to the Wood Street bar and restaurant to say farewell to actors James Sutton (John Paul McQueen) and his on-screen sister Leah Hackett (Tina).

James Sutton's Jake love
The 25-year-old actor's character in the soap, John Paul McQueen, is in a relationship with Jake's character Kieron Hobbs - a former priest who is murdered in an upcoming episode - and admits their on-screen partnership helped them forge a strong friendship.

James said: "I really miss working with Jake Hendriks. I love him to bits. We're very close, so I'll still see him."
