EIGHT friends tested their swing when they organised a golfathon to raise money in aid of Alder Hey Hospital Children’s.

The team launched the golf quest at 5am before finishing the last game at 10pm at Alder Root Golf Club in Winwick.

Shaun Caddick, aged 38, of Rushton Close, Burtonwood, said: “We have done this before on several occasions, but due to the work, effort and commitment required to pull this off it has been two years since we last attempted it. The day went fantastic, e raised around £900.”
