Golfer Stuart Helps Raise £10k For Oldham Cancer Centre

He might not be Tiger Woods, but our very own Stuart Chamberlain cut an impressive figure for a charity day at Saddleworth Golf Club.

HPP's Health and Safety Officer took part in a four-ball team event in aid of Maggie's Oldham, which raised £10,736, including £310 from Stuart's team.

Maggie's Oldham is one of 23 centres across the UK providing wide-ranging support for cancer patients and their loved ones.

And to help a well deserving cause, we sponsored the par 4, 329 yard, 9th hole named Colt Hill, which added another £100 to the total.

Stuart says: "My thanks to HPP for joining the 18 firms sponsoring a hole. It was a great day for a well deserving cause. We played pretty well - with the exception of the fifth!"

A keen golfer for 22 years, Stuart is a member at Saddleworth and plays off a handicap of 10.

He joined the Maggie's fundraiser with fellow Saddleworth member Darren Smith and two of his pals from Bury Golf Club.

They were one of 20 teams taking part, and although they didn't top the leaderboard they finished with an impressive 83 points - four points behind the winners.

And as a regular at Saddleworth, Stuart never ceases to be stirred by the view from the 8th - the farmhouse clearly visible from there is where he lived as a young child. "I spent the first couple of years of my life in the house about 40 years ago," adds Stuart. "My parents lived with my grandparents and then later moved to Delph where I grew up."

"We all had a fantastic day playing golf, on a quality course for an incredibly worthy and important local charity. Well done to the Maggie's team for organising it and to all those who took part."
