Golfers are being encouraged to enter a North Derbyshire charity game to raise money for people living with motor neurone disease.

The event is happening at Hallowes Golf Club, Dronfield, on Friday, June 20, and has been inspired by the ordeal of former estate agent Matt Rowland, who lives locally and was diagnosed with MND last year.

The condition is a progressive, incurable illness which gradually effects sufferers’ ability to move and, eventually, breathe.

Matt was once a keen golfer and is a member and former course record-holder at Hallowes.

The charity contest is offering a prize of a BMW car for a hole-in-one on the fourth hole – while there are also nearest-the-pin and longest drive prizes along the course.

Several Dronfield firms have already pledged their support and sponsorship.

Entry costs £160 per term, including a meal in the clubhouse and free drinks both on the course and after the game.

Registrations are being accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Sponsorship packages are also available from the same email address.
