Four! Gareth, Gary, Andrew and Alex at the end of their epic challenge for Macmillan on the longest day.
Gareth Browning, Gary Roberts, Andrew Boardman, Alex Green have raised over £1,300 from taking part in Macmillan’s Longest Day Golf Challenge for Macmillan ... and are still going strong.
'We have always wanted to do something for charity especially a worthy cause and this opportunity with Macmillan. It was a great reason for us all to be motivated and exited to raise as much as possible for a great charity. Macmillan is a charity that is close to all of us as it helps all cancer patients through the process that one day we ourselves may come across whether that be through friends or family.
'The day itself was extremely hard mentally and physically and all of us had certain areas where towards the end of the 4 rounds were affecting us. However, we all completed it together and were all especially thankful for all the support we had throughout the day, especially on the last hole where a lot of our friends and family assembled to watch and walk with us up the last hole which was a great feeling! Finally we would like to thank Abbey golf course and hotel for accommodating us to play the rounds for free of charge.'
