TWO teenage friends from Bury went the extra round for charity by playing an incredible 100 holes in one day on Monday, June 22.

Sam Lambert and Elliot Whalley, both aged 19, teed off at 4.30am and covered 25 miles on foot before achieving their goal at 6.30pm. They turned to their friends to undertake caddying duties for them.

Sam and Elliot only lost a few balls around the course and were exhilarated by the time they had finished.

Sam said: “I felt the hospice charity is so important helping families in times of need and I didn’t realise how much it costs each day to run the hospice.”

Their dawn ‘til dusk challenge took place at Greenmount Golf Club and has raised an impressive £2,735 so far for Bury Hospice.

Rachel Wallace, Head of Fundraising and Communications for Bury Hospice said: “We are so grateful to Sam and Elliot for fundraising for us, and to everyone who has donated.

"It is community events like these the hospice asks people to support, as whilst we cannot fundraise ourselves, community fundraising is invaluable.”
