Helsby PWA's 'Wheelchair Classic' (7 Jun 2018)

On a hot sunny June day, Helsby Golf Club held their annual fundraising “Wheelchair Classic” charity fundraiser. There was a golf competition with approximately 160 players, a meal and then the highlight was the presentation of wheelchairs in the evening to deserving local youngsters.

Actor Ricky Tomlinson was on hand to present the chairs and much laughter was had as you can imagine!

Finally a raffle and charity auction took place and a fantastic total of just over £18,000 was raised on the day!

The wheelchairs were presented to – 
• Declan Maynock aged 18 from Holmes Chapel
• Charlie Holmes aged 4 from Stone
• Freya Boothman aged 8 from Frodsham
• Bethany Stocker aged 16 from Anderton, Northwich
• Connor Webb aged 16 from Widnes 

The youngsters were joined on the night by their parents, family and friends and the presentation of the chairs brings the total for the appeal to 376.

Golfing honours on the day for the gents were Steve Cunniffe and Rordan Douse and for the ladies, mother and daughter duo, Kath and Julia Wilkinson.

The Powered Wheelchair Appeal would like to thank the main event sponsor Jigsaw Law and the Ellesmere Port Lions for their hole sponsorship. Once again many thanks go to all their supporters and local businesses for their generosity and helping to raise such a fantastic amount – THANK YOU!!

500th Chair milestone reached (Jan 2018)

A huge milestone for the Charity was reached recently when the 500th powered wheelchair since the Peter Alliss Masters charity was set up in 2006 was presented.

It was perhaps fitting that this amazing feat took place at Helsby Golf Club, one of the Charity’s longest serving and most prolific fundraisers, who themselves have presented over 370 chairs since they took up the cause in the early 1980s.

A huge thank you to all our supporters across the UK and Ireland who have donated so generously over the years. Here’s to the next 500!
