Pryors Hayes Hosts Stick & Step Charity Golf Day

Golfers from around the North West turned out in force yet again, for the annual Bank Holiday Monday Stick 'n' Step golf day at Pryors Hayes golf club. The bumper day delivered a whopping £29,000 for the Wirral-based charity.

A host of famous names from the world of sport and entertainment to give their backing to Stick 'n' Step. Former soccer stars including Kevin Ratcliffe, Jason McAteer, Alex Stepney, Arthur Albiston and Frank Stapleton were joined on the course by comedian Stan Boardman and singer/songwriter Bernie Flint. The day was rounded off with stand-up comic Justin Moorhouse hosting the prize-giving and auction.

Sky Sports Commentator, and Stick 'n' Step ambassador, Rob Palmer said: "Once again we've been overwhelmed with the staggering generosity of so many people. Everyone has dug deep to give what they can to the charity, while some of our regular celebrity supporters have given up their precious time on a bank holiday to come out and help raise our profile. This means so much to the parents who access support from Stick 'n' Step. As someone myself who has benefitted from the work the charity does, I know how grateful they are."

Stick 'n' Step Operations Manager, Sarah Smithson, added: "With our operating costs for the centre running at around £25,000 a month the golf day contributes a significant sum to our income and helps pay for around four weeks of our annual overheads. We cannot thank everyone who continues to support us enough, without their help many families would not get the dedicated help for their children."

Ed: Stick 'n' Step is a children's charity based in Wallasey that provides free specialist conductive education and support services to children with cerebral palsy and their families and carers across the North West of England and North Wales. There are currently 70 children attending sessions at Stick 'n' Step, which costs approximately £350,000 each year to fund.
