A business in Windermere has managed to raise £1000 for the MS Society through the power of golf.

McClures, a food service provider to local businesses in the north of England, handed over the cheque for the sizable sum on Wednesday, October 25.

This followed their 23rd annual golf day, which took place at the start of September to raise money for the charity.

Sarah Keast, Social Media and Marketing Manager at McClures, said: "Every year we have our Golf Day and invite suppliers and customers to come and network and socialise and each year we have a chosen charity.

"This year we decided upon MS as we have some staff members whose families have been affected by this terrible disease."

The annual Bill McClure Golf Day took place at the Ulverston Golf Club & Pro Shop and was hotly contested by those involved, including a famous mascot from a brand of crisps.

"We were lucky with the weather and the sun shone bright throughout the day!

"A fantastic day was had by all, helped on by Kellogg’s Mr Pringle!"

Multiple sclerosis is a neurological condition in which the immune system attacks the body's nerves instead of an infection by mistake.

Whilst the condition is a life long one once diagnosed, treatments and specialists can help those affected to manage it and its symptoms.

The MS Society works by funding ground breaking research in the hope of improving treatment, campaigning for more attention placed on the condition, and providing care for those who need it.

At the Golf Day, the winning team were the Food Fellas, comprised of Chris Green, Pete Carmichael, Nick Payne and Scott Rimmell.

Ben McClure, Sales Director at McClures, was the one to hand the cheque over to Andy Green, who is north of England Fund Manager for the MS Society.
