Golfers on course for an­nual team bat­tle

Macclesfield Express - - EAST CHESHIRE HOSPICE -

GOLFERS will soon be back in the swing of rais­ing money at the East Cheshire Hospice Char­ity Golf Day.

The last few places are still avail­able for the an­nual team event at Prestbury Golf Club on Thurs­day, June 16.

It is or­gan­ised by John Davies, di­rec­tor of Mac­tex Prop­er­ties Ltd, who was in­volved in the first tour­na­ment run by hospice fundraiser Mar­garet Broughton in 1984.

The golf event was re­vived two years ago af­ter a short break and last year raised £8,000 – enough to fund 24 hours of care at the hospice.

For­mer golf pro­fes­sional Nigel Pre­ston is one of the or­gan­is­ers.

The for­mat is four­ball bet­ter­ball stable­ford (best two net scores count) and the cost is £375 a team.

A shot­gun start at 1pm fol­lows a light lunch with a pre­sen­ta­tion din­ner at the club from 7pm.

The menu in­cludes: home­made chicken liver and co­gnac par­fait fol­lowed by slow braised lamb shank and sum­mer fruits pavlova.

John said: “I’d like to thank every­one who sup­ports the event and Prestbury Golf Club for their kind hos­pi­tal­ity each year.

“East Cheshire Hospice is such a won­der­ful cause and we’re de­lighted to raise funds for a char­ity which is such a vi­tal part of our com­mu­nity.”

Any­one in­ter­ested in en­ter­ing a team or spon­sor­ship can con­tact John via email jd­mac­tex1@aol.co.uk.
