Golfers raise £7,800

Macclesfield Express - - EAST CHESHIRE HOSPICE -

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.
