A group of Norfolk golfing friends, including Andrew Fryer from our Acle office, have swung into action to raise thousands of pounds for charity by taking part in The Big Golf Race for Prostate Cancer UK.

Mike Cutter, Andrew Fryer, Matt Gee, Vaughan Cutter, Glenn Harman, Andrew Fox and Graham Eagle played four rounds of golf in a single day – walking the equivalent of a marathon.

During The Big Golf Race challenge at Great Yarmouth and Caister Golf Club, the team completed 72 holes, only briefly stopping to fuel up on food and drink as they made their way around the course.

Proving no competitor was under par, the group have raised more than £7,000 for their efforts.

A bucket collection, organised by Vaughan at Great Yarmouth Racecourse at the end of a horse racing meet, collected £967.26.  The team have also been gifted a large donation from Stephenson Smart Accountants and Business Advisors.

Andrew said: “We started at around 5am and finished around 7.30pm, so it was a long, but very enjoyable day.

“Mike, who was the main organiser, had been wanting to do something like this for a while as we are all at the age where prostate cancer is more prevalent, and it’s important to raise awareness. He managed to get a group of us together and the rest they say is history.

“We were lucky with the weather until the last couple of holes where we did get wet, but it didn’t stop us completing the challenge. We had fantastic support from the club who kept us fed and watered. There’s talk now of perhaps doing it every other year.

“We were all a bit achy the next day, but it was so worth it to raise such a lot of money. We thought we might raise around £1,000, so to raise more than £7,000 is fantastic.
