True sports­man­ship

Cheshire Life - - Scene & Heard - PHO­TOS: Si­mon War­bur­ton

Friends, fam­ily and fel­low golfers gath­ered to hon­our the life of PGA pro­fes­sional Jonny Pearce at Pry­ors Hayes Golf Club near Ch­ester.

Jonny sadly passed away last Novem­ber af­ter a four-year bat­tle with brain cancer and his loved ones or­gan­ised the day to raise money for the Brain Tu­mour Char­ity. The rain may have fallen but spirits stayed strong and com­peti­tors con­tin­ued to smile down the fair­ways. Trick-shot pro, Ady Wheatcroft, from Ace Golf Challenge brought some fun to the ninth hole with his im­pres­sive skills.

The afternoon raised £25,000 from spon­sors, do­na­tions and a raf­fle whilst the team rep­re­sent­ing North­wich Glass took the top spot in the com­pe­ti­tion. Or­gan­is­ers hope it will be the first of an on­go­ing an­nual event held in Jonny’s mem­ory.
