Chester golfers swing into action to support people affected by motor neurone disease – The Chester Chronicle

Golfers swung into action to raise funds for a charity supporting people affected by motor neurone disease in Cheshire.

Vic Piercy and Alf Jones organised the charity golf day at Upton-by-Chester golf club in aid of the Cheshire branch of the MND Association.

Vic, aged 60, organises a charity event each year and in 2017 decided the MND Association should be the charity to benefit.

He was inspired in his efforts by his mother-in-law Margaret Endres who battled the incurable condition, while Alf wanted to do something to show his support in honour of his brother-in-law who also had MND.

The day welcomed nearly 200 participants, including the club’s golf pro Nick Sergeant and assistant pro Hannah Burford who ensured everything ran smoothly on the course.

The celebration continued into the evening with a charity dinner and auction. A host of prizes were up for grabs including jewellery donated by Beaverbrooks, a hamper of goodies donated by Coyle Michael men’s hair salon in Chester, and various items of sports memorabilia.
