Charity Golf day raises £3,000 for motorcyclist victim

Altrincham Golf Course, one of the 2 courses run by Trafford Leisure, held an impromptu golf day to raise funds for Will Partington a green keeper at the course. Will was seriously injured in a motorbike accident back in September and was left in a critical condition. Will was forced into an induced coma, thankfully Will has fought hard and made great improvements and is now awake and undergoing physiotherapy and re-habitation. 

Over 60 people supported the charity golf event, despite some heavy rain in the morning the enthusiasm to raise funds for Will were not doused. Golf Manager, Paul Murray said, “I would like to thank everyone who played in the competition and to everyone who supported it at such short notice. Will is a very popular lad who was seriously injured in the accident and we wanted to raise funds to help him through his rehabilitation. Everyone helped out to make sure the day went well and I would like to thank Manchester United, Airkix, Daytona, Worsley Marriot and The Old Hall in Altrincham, for providing prizes and auction items. We all send our best wishes to Will and his family and hope his recovery continues to improve”.

The day was a great success and raised a fantastic amount. Bernie Jones, Chief Executive and Peter Martin, Chairman of Trafford Community Leisure Trust agreed to match the money that was raised on the day, bringing Will’s charity fund to nearly £3,000.

 Paul continues by saying “The amount we raised is really good, but we want to do more and will be looking at organising more events to help Will next year. It is such a tragic incident for such a young man with his life ahead of him, anything we can do to help we will do, so that we can get Will back on his feet again”
