Sir Alex Ferguson among over 200 golfers who turned out for event’s 11th edition.

NORTHENDEN Golf Club played host to the 11th annual Norton Barrie Golf Day, organised by Northenden member Blake Norton in memory of his dad to support The Christie Charity – a cancer research and aid organisation.

Over £23,000 was raised on the day, taking the total raised over the past ten years through the £100,000 mark, much to the delight of Blake and his family.

“We were blessed with great weather and had a double
shotgun Team Stableford, which saw 212 players in action, including former Manchester United stars, David May and Andy Cole,” said Blake.

“Also very active and supportive on the day was Sir Alex Ferguson, who had entered a team and also donated a fabulous auction prize of a chauffeur-driven Bentley to Old Trafford, dinner with him in the directors’ room, and a seat with him in the directors’ box for the game with Chelsea. That raised £3,000 alone.

“We had many sponsors to thank, in particular Money Plus Energy. I would also like to thank all of those who donated prizes for raffles and auction and so many who helped on the day and to my club Northenden for their support over the years.

“The Christie Charity was the big winner and we were all delighted to cross the £100,000 mark for the charity.”
