Golfers raise £7,800
PRESTBURY Golf Club has been raising funds for East Cheshire Hospice since 1987 – a year before the charity’s doors were even open.
Every year players compete for the MACTEX Trophy, with the latest golf day raising £7,888, enough to pay for more than 24 hours of care at the hospice.
The trophy was donated by member John Davies, owner of Macclesfield precision engineering company MACTEX which makes machinery for the textile industry.
John and fellow organiser Nigel Preston, operations director at Interflex Marketing, visited the hospice to deliver the donation and receive a guided tour from matron Emma Dixon and advanced nurse practitioner Tracy Graham-Woollard.
Emma said: “It’s lovely to be able to show supporters like John and Nigel exactly what their fundraising efforts will help to provide.
“It gives us a chance to explain just what goes into delivering our special brand of care over a 24-hour period.”
Employees from Thorneycroft Solicitors helped with the running of the golf day.
