HEATON Of­fice So­lu­tions had the King’s School’s an­nual bur­sary fund golf day taped up with a su­perb score of 90 points to pip veteran Ron Smart and his men on a card count back.

The Mersey­side team are based in Liver­pool with a branch in Mac­cles­field and have been sup­pli­ers to the King’s School for many years.

Heaton’s team skip­per Danny Young, who nor­mally plays his golf on a se­ries of top Wir­ral links cour­ses, said: “We’ve played in the last four events and have im­proved bit by bit each year as we get to know the many and var­ied chal­lenges of this su­perb Mac­cles­field course.

“We couldn’t be more happy to win but much more im­por­tantly to be part of this fan­tas­tic fund rais­ing ef­fort.”

The event, which has been nur­tured by the hugely pop­u­lar King’s for­mer pupil and ex-rugby league pro­fes­sional Alan McInnes, has now raised over £30,000 in to­tal help­ing to build the King’s Bur­sary fund which now stands at around £800,000.

King’s Head­mas­ter Dr. Si­mon Hyde said: “The Golf Day is a won­der­ful fundraiser for the Bur­sary scheme, which en­ables lo­cal chil­dren the op­por­tu­nity of a King’s ed­u­ca­tion and from I what I can see also al­lows for­mer pupils to re­new the com­pet­i­tive in­stincts they de­vel­oped on our play­ing fields.”

King’s of­fers a range of bur­saries for lo­cal chil­dren ap­ply­ing to the school for 11+ and Sixth Form places.

The an­nual golf day is one of the ma­jor fundrais­ing events of the year and re­ceives huge sup­port from a range of spon­sors and lo­cal busi­nesses.
