CHESHIRE businesses showed their iron when they turned out on the golf course to raise money for Saltney’s MS Support Centre.

Golfers faced brisk winds and fleeing balls as they competed at the second annual Bell Meadow Charity Golf Day.

Neil Kemsley, chairman of the MS Support Centre, said: “Fourteen teams turned out to play a game of Texas Scramble golf in challenging and very windy conditions, which made positioning the balls on the green interesting to say the least.

“We would also like to thank all our sponsors and everyone who donated a raffle prize, but especially Stuart Cranfield at Bell Meadow, Ross Johnson at Thomas Cole, Seamus Wild at Charles Stanley and Jonathan Turner at AGS Security Systems and of course Helsby Golf Club for making the day a success.”

The day, which included refreshments on arrival, a three course dinner, raffle and prize-giving event in the evening, raised £2,400 - more than 50% higher than last year’s event.

The victorious team was i7, who beat teams from Bell Meadow, AGS Security Systems, SBS Design, Walker Smith Way, Brymau Estates, Real Earth, Catton Hall Shooting Ground, Jason Howard Photography, ARQ Design, St Annes Contractors and Aaron and Partners.
