Raising Money Fore! Macmillan

Our very own Area Sales Manager for West Scotland, Nick Boyle has managed to complete an exhausting golfing challenge. Covering a staggering 900 shots in over 72 hours he’s raised a fantastic £3,000 for our together charity Macmillan.

Nick took part in The Longest Day Golf Challenge, run by Macmillan and endorsed by Stephen Gallacher, Taylor Made and The Scottish Golf Union. Nick who was helped in the challenge by his brother Darren, began the challenge at around 5.30am each day to tackle the 72 holes.

Nick commented: “My brother and I have both experienced family members and friends with cancer which is why we wanted to raise money for Macmillan. We felt it was important to set ourselves a tough task which is why we extended it over the three days. However, a golf challenge is nothing in comparison to what those experiencing cancer have to go through.

“The weather conditions weren’t great but I’m glad we did it and I’m equally glad it’s over, my highlight has to be completing the challenge with a birdie over three feet to an audience of twenty or so – a fantastic finish. ”
