The eighth Great Wall Chinese Charity day was held in aid of the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.

Twelve teams of four golfers competed for a great table of prizes with the winning score of 99 stableford points only won on a count back.

The score that won represented 19 under par as the par three holes needed three score to count. The overall winners were Bradley Seymour, Chris Burns, Mark Campbell and Mark Mitchell. Runners up was “The Bradford Lads” team of Steve Aldeguer, Jimmy Fitzpatrick, Darren Hartley and last minute call up Mark Widdop who lost out on the count back.

The presentation was held at The Great Wall Chinese restaurant in Brighouse and was hosted by James Chan, who has run and promoted the event for the last eight years, and was ably assisted both on the day and in the preparations by a team which involved John Turner, Richard Langley-Webb, Dave Ashton and winner Mark Campbell.

At the evening banquet the golfers and their guests heard from Jason Costello, partnerships manager at the hospice, on how the thousands raised over the years has been making a real difference to the children and families. Hundreds of pounds were raised which were donated to the charity.
