A BROMSGROVE man has organised a charity golf day which will see him and three friends take part in 72 holes of golf over the course of 12 hours.
Lee Simmonds, of Rednal, hopes to raise £1,000 for The Macmillan Trust from playing four rounds at Lickey Hills Golf Course tomorrow (Saturday).
He said: “It will be a bit of fun whilst raising as much money as we can for a charity that does not get recognised very much out on the street, as a lot of the fund-raising gets done in-house.”
The cause is close to Lee’s heart as his family have relied on Macmillan Nurses in the past to help a relative.
Although the group are all keen golfers, they only get the chance to enjoy the sport together around three times a year due to work commitments.
Lee added: “I am really looking forward to it – I can’t wait.
“We are all very excited and although there will be a sense of competition between us, we will keep it friendly.
“It would be a long day to keep up a winning streak.”
The group will tee off at 6am and plan to break after the first rounds, before playing straight through the final two, depending on the weather.
