Golf Academy stars to embark on dawn-till-dusk challenge for national cancer charity

Adrian Lewis, Charley Simpson and Reuben Bather

A trio of Golf Academy stars at Rydal Penrhos will be embarking on a gruelling event in aid of a national cancer charity.

Adrian Lewis, Charley Simpson and Reuben Bather will attempt a Dawn-till-Dusk Golf Challenge on Wednesday, June 28 at North Wales Golf Club in Llandudno, with all proceeds from their fundraising initiative going towards Macmillan Cancer Support.

The three hopefuls will begin their mission at 5am on the first tee, and will go around together until a scheduled 10pm finish.

This is not the first time that Year 7 pupil Charley has taken on this challenge, with the 11-handicapper completing a similar event in aid of BBC Children in Need at a host of different clubs across North Wales in November last year.

Year 9 pupil Adrian, said: “We were approached by Macmillan to see if we wanted to do it, and we jumped at the chance.

“It is a very early start which is going to be difficult, but hopefully we can raise as much as possible for them.”

All three are prominent members of Rydal Penrhos’ Golf Academy, with Reuben – who plays with a three handicap – finishing third overall at the recent ISGA Junior League National Championships.

They are hoping to raise around £500 from their efforts, and have been busy collecting sponsorship from pupils and staff ahead of the event.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, added: “This will no doubt test Adrian, Charley and Reuben to their limits, but they are full prepared for every eventuality and everyone at Rydal Penrhos is extremely proud of what they are doing and wish them the very best of luck.”
