The 2nd Annual Golf Day at Leyland Golf Club with all teams competing for the newly named ‘Gerald Harwood’ Trophy, named after an ex Leyland Trucks employee who was an avid golfer and competed in the competition last year.
The weather was a complete washout, but the level of commitment from the teams playing in the rain was amazing. We had 14 teams start and 7 finish.
Of that 7, the winning team was The Striped Pig with a brilliant individual performance from Will Walne. Gerald’s wife Doris and son Andrew were there to present the trophy to the winners.
We raised over £2000 and that will go directly to local Charities.
A nine-year-old boy from Clayton-le-Woods has been presented with a special gift by Leyland Trucks, after his fundraising efforts singlehandedly brought in more than five per cent of the manufacturer’s £16,000 charity donation to St Catherine’s Hospice.
