MORE than £3,500 was raised for research into Parkinson’s disease at a charity event at Chipping Sodbury Golf Club.
The special match day was organised by long-standing club member Steve Taylor, of Iron Acton, who was diagnosed with the condition nine years ago.
He has been raising money and making more people aware of the disease ever since.
Steve, a former club captain, thanked everyone who helped at the event, which saw more than 130 golfers play in teams of four.
He said: “It was a tremendous day, which was very well supported by golfers and local businesses to raise awareness of Parkinson’s and raise much needed funds for research into this unpleasant illness.”
The research to be funded as a result of the event will be carried out at Bristol University.
Thornbury and Yate MP Luke Hall, who helped launch the fund raiser, said: “Steve has shown real courage and determination in the face of his diagnosis. I was delighted to go long and show my support for such a great cause.”
