●● THE Tytherington Club will welcome Macclesfield Town captain Paul Turnbull on Friday as he attempts a different kind of hat-trick to raise money for a cancer charity.
‘Bully’ will swap his football boots for golf shoes to tackle a gruelling three-course marathon consisting of 54 holes in 24 hours, along with his friend and manager of the Railway Pub in Handforth, Ben Quinn.
The pair have managed to raise £384 of their £500 target for Cancer Research so far.
They aim to get round 18,273 yards by completing 18 holes at Tytherington, Macclesfield and Alderley Edge golf clubs.
They are set for a very early start at the Tytherington club.
Paul said: “It is going to be tough but it will be worth it.
“We tee off at 6am and won’t finish until around 8pm.
“All proceeds are going to charity to raise as much as possible for Cancer Research.
“A lot of people I know have been affected in some way by cancer, including my family, therefore every donation – no matter how big or small – goes to making a huge difference to saving people’s lives.
“We are very grateful for all your support.”
Donations are being collected at the Railway Pub, Handforth and those looking to donate online can do so by visiting justgiving.com/ challenge54 ●● PLANNING news:
