Shrigley puts on great show
SHRIGLEY Hall were great hosts for the Corporate Showcase Day which attracted 35 local and national business teams to enjoy their splendid facilities and a course in prime condition and they also enjoyed superb weather.
The top team after a cpo on 49 points were the Volkswagen, Macclesafield duo of Ian Wood and Gareth Wilshaw from Neil Shinebaum and Scotney Jarvis of Rhodium Events and in third spot with 45 points were Mark Walker and Chris Hughes of Swizzells Matlow.
The shot of the day came from Chris Talbot (Leisuresale.co.uk) who hit his 7-iron straight in on the fly to the 15th for an eagle two.
Nearest the pin prizes went to Tony Longbottom (Room Search) and Neil Shinebaum.
Macclesfield Golf Club’s Annual Captain’s Charity Ball supported the Peter Alliss Masters Electric Wheelchairs and it raised a fabulous total of over £5.000.
This provided two specialist electric wheelchairs with the help of Simon Paddick from ‘The Helpful Hand’ and it is hoped that enough money will be raised to provide a third.
The grateful recipients on the night were Natalie Armitt who suffers from Rett Syndrome and Molly Crowderbridge who suffers with Pitts Hopkins Syndrome and they were both there with their parents.
