GOLF: PLAYERS raised over £4,000 on Saturday in the Tayler Farr Charity Golf Day at Ellesmere Port Golf Club.
Seven-year-old Tayler of Ellesmere Port, who has cerebral palsy and attends Dorin Park Special School in Upton, was present to hand over the winner's trophy to the victorious four-man team of R Murtah, S Harwood, D Waterson and M Wilkinson.
Organiser Denver Brazier said: 'This year's event was a terrific success with 47 teams and a total of 428 players taking part. We had some fantastic weather throughout the day and raised £4,173, although we hope the final total will be around £4,400.'
Most of the funds will go towards the Tayler Farr Charity Appeal to buy her an electronic bed, but Tayler has donated some of the total to both Alder Hey and the Countess of Chester Hospitals for television/video sets in their children's wards.
* A total of 110 entrants took part in Hooton Ladies open competition with Dawn Hodge first on 41 Stableford points.
Judy Foster was runner-up with 37 points while Margaret Swanson was third on 35 points.
Dawn Hodge had the longest drive in the silver division, Janice Jones recorded the longest drive in the bronze division and Mary Hill was nearest the pin.
* Hooton Ladies captain Angela Casey also held a Charity Day with both men and women playing off a 3/4 handicap and £1,000 was raised for the Clatterbridge Cancer Research Trust.
Dawn Hodge took the ladies' section with 38 points followed by Moira Ferguson and Susan Adams, while Richie Prescott topped the men's with 37 points, ahead of Alan Henry on 36 and Simon Browse on 34.
