A man will take on 72 holes of golf in a day with family and friends to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Stuart Fox, who manages the sports and uniform shop at Oundle School, will take on the mammoth effort at Rushden Golf Club starting at 4.30am on June 25.

It’s the third year in a row Mr Fox will attempt the challenge, having had skin cancer removed from his face last year.

Mr Fox, who has worked at Oundle School for eight years, said: “Two years ago was a challenge, but was easy compared to last year when it took three days to recover and included a physio session the day after the event.

“The attempt last year was particularly hard for me as two days prior I was in hospital having a skin cancer removed from the side of my face.

“Because of this I was unsure about trying for third year, but after the encouragement we received it just has to be done.”

The challenge will take more than 350 shots each and include several miles of walking, and will take well over 12 hours.

Mr Fox added: “In 2015 the team raised £1,767 and we hope to raise even more for this wonderful charity.”

The aim of the golf day is to raise awareness and more importantly money for the work that Macmillan Cancer Support does.

Almost everyone will know of someone who has recovered from or has lost the fight with cancer and Macmillan help to support people who have cancer and their families.
