CHARITY GOLF DAY AT STOCKPORT GOLF CLUB RAISES £26,000
Stockport Golf Club recently hosted the Adana Construction Golf Day raising £26,000 for two charities, the Beechwood Cancer Care Centre in Stockport and the Offside Trust. Members Joe Jassim (MD of Adana Construction) and Chris Unsworth both have close links to these charities that support people living with cancer and other life-limiting illness and survivors of child sex abuse in football.
Joe, who is fairly new to golf, is working hard to reduce his handicap. His company has a great history of supporting Beechwood. Chris, an ex-professional footballer and golfer still playing off scratch, is a director of the Offside Trust and a former victim of child sex abuse.
Everybody really enjoyed a great day that that was capped off by an exhibition of golf trick shots by professional Geoff Swain.
The winning team from B & W Plant Hire scored 91 points, were presented by Joe with four Callaway golf bags at an evening dinner hosted by Paul Merson, the former England footballer and Les Jowsey, the Captain of the Golf Club.
