FORMER players from Liverpool FC’s illustrious past are heading to Tarporley to raise money for charity.
The players will gather at Macdonald Portal Hotel for the annual Gerry Marsden Charity Golf Day in aid of Wirral Holistic Care Services Therapeutic Cancer Care.
Ian St John, Alan Kennedy, Roger Hunt and Tony Hateley will be joined on Thursday, September 4, by horse racing trainers Ginger and Beryl McCain, singer Charlie Landsborough and former Everton FC manager Gordon Lee.
Following 18 holes of golf on the championship course, the sporting celebrities and corporate golfers will enjoy a three-course dinner at the hotel where Merseybeat legend Marsden will present the prizes to the winning teams.
Chief executive Dorothy Crowther set up Wirral Holistic Care Services in 1988 to offer psychological and emotional support to cancer patients through a wide range of support services, including complementary therapies and counselling.
She said: “This is one of our main fundraising initiatives of the year and since this is our 20th year, it would be fantastic if we could match or even better last year’s total.
“We are grateful to all the former Liverpool players and local businesses for giving up their time and providing their financial help.”
