TWO teenagers got into the swing of things - and then some - as part of a golfing charity challenge for Bury Hospice.

Oliver Berry, 15, from Woodhey High School and Joe Emery, 14, from Bolton School, played 100 holes in one day on Monday, July 6 at Harwood Golf Club.

The two friends met nine years ago at Walshaw Sports FC and regularly play football and golf together.

Oliver, along with his Mum, Dad and sister Charlotte, stayed in their motorhome on Sunday evening ahead of the mammoth challenge.

Joe arrived at the golf club at 4.50am on Monday, with the pair teeing off at 5am and achieving their goal 16 hours later at 9pm.

There were 40 people around the last green with friends, family and club members all cheering the duo on.

They raised an amazing £2,600 for Bury Hospice, a charity close to both boys’ hearts.

Both Oliver and Joe said they were doing it for a great cause and they wanted to raise money for the hospice to help people receive the care they need.

Rachel Wallace, head of fundraising and communications for Bury Hospice said: “We are so grateful to Oliver and Joe for taking on the 100 holes in one day challenge to support the hospice, and to everyone who has donated.

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