A group of golfers from Seaford raised around £2,500 for Macmillan by playing four rounds of golf or 72 holes in a day.

The players taking part in the Longest Day Golf Challenge were Darren Chisholm, 45, Christian Simpson, 43, Andy Hutchings, 36 and Daryl Tullett, 24 (pictured).

The group thanked Seaford Head Golf Club for being accommodating throughout the day and providing them with lunch and refreshments free of charge.

Darren said: “We started at 04:50 in thick fog but we couldn’t wait for the fog to lift as we were pushed for time.

“We made good time though and the rounds went much quicker than expected.

“There were lots of people who helped us through the day from caddies to friends delivering cold beer to us on the course to keep us going.

“We finally finished the fourth round at 20:15 and as a fitting climax we all finished with a birdie.”

The group had collection tins in The Cinque Ports pub in Seaford, Simpson Marine in Newhaven and Seaford Head Golf Club.

They completed the challenge, which was part of a national scheme organised by Macmillan, on Friday July 5.

Macmillan provides practical, medical and financial support and pushes for better cancer care.
