Golf challenge at Morley Hayes raises £220 for twins with SMA

On Saturday July 21st a group of people came together to help generate funds for the Twins with SMA trust fund.

Michael Bolton, uncle to Sam and Alex (Twins with SMA) organised the event which took place at Morley Hayes Golf Club in Derby. An 19 strong party (Listed below) took part and paid fees to play 18 holes on the picturesque course and despite the weather being in doubt for most of the time the day turned out ok and a good time was had by all that took part.

Although there was a mild competitive nature to the game with prizes on offer for the ‘longest drive’ and ‘closest to the pin’ shots it was all played in fantastic spirits and even by the none golfers amongst the party who forgot that the fairway and greens were the target and not the long grass, water traps and bunkers had a frustrating but enjoyable day and all the way through no one forgot why they were actually there.

Everyone retired to the 19th hole for food and drinks where there was also a raffle that took place. Even people who had nothing to do with the party took part and reaped the rewards with prizes such as Beer, Wine and Spirits being donated by some of the players. Other prizes such as vouchers from Bliss (Beauty Salon) in Littleover were also won but the main prize, which was very kindly donated by our hosts at Morley Hayes, was a free round of golf for four, so a special thank you goes to them.

A total of £220 was raised by the event and Twins with SMA would like to thank everyone that took part and especially Uncle Michael for organising what turned out to be a fantastic and successful event.

Participants were : Nick Buchanan, Julian Brown, Wayne Clowes, Peter Haynes, Michael Gibb, Andrew Denton, Wayne Keenan, Paul Simmonds, Michael Bolton, Greg Gregory, Chris Todd, Shaun Bestwick, Richard Clarke, John Hargreaves, Wayne Hall, Ian Bolton, Rob McGuire, Grant Gibb, Keith Bass
