Golf day raises hos­pice funds

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORING -

A FUN filled event hosted by Tyther­ing­ton Golf Club has raised more than £700 for char­ity.

The day was or­gan­ised by Mac­cles­field Ten­nis Club which wel­comed play­ers and friends to take part in a friendly golf tour­na­ment.

James Rouse, ten­nis club com­mit­tee mem­ber, said: “We were blessed with beau­ti­ful weather for the ten­nis club golf at The Tyther­ing­ton Club and seven teams took part in the com­pe­ti­tion which was won by Ian Wor­rall’s team with a score of 87.”

The win­ning team was made up of Peter Davis, Ian Wor­rall, Nick Homes and Matt Gil­li­brand, who took part in the Sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion.

The com­pe­ti­tion pre­ceded a fun-filled evening with more than 80 guests en­joy­ing a din­ner and en­ter­tain­ment at the club.

James added: “Forty play­ers and guests joined us for the evening din­ner and we were roy­ally en­ter­tained af­ter the meal by Becky Mills who did an hour long set of her own mu­sic and cov­ers. The day was held to raise money for East Cheshire Hos­pice (ECH) and thanks to the great gen­eros­ity of play­ers and raf­fle prize do­na­tors we were able to send a cheque to ECH for £721 from the pro­ceeds on the day. Par­tic­u­lar thanks are due to Chris Br­ere­ton and Jane Rouse who did the raf­fle and took the team photos.”

The com­pe­ti­tion in­cluded prizes for near­est the pin, long­est drive and cham­pagne mo­ment.

En­ter­tain­ment was pro­vided by gui­tarist and singer/song­writer Becky Mills.
