A GOLF day in memory of a little boy who died from a rare genetic condition has raised more than £2,000 for charity.

This is the sixth year there has been a memorial golf game for Jack Blunsdon, organised by his dad Dave, but it was the first time it was held at West Chiltington Golf Club.

It was in aid of the Myotubular Trust charity, which was set up by two mums whose sons suffered from the same disease.

Dave, 45, of Grinstead Avenue, Lancing, said: “They are making incredible progress into isolating the genes responsible for this horrific condition and rely completely on donations to fund the research.

“This year, we had 35 golfers who played in a Texas Scramble competition which was won this year by the team The Fourth Man.”

The golfing event raised more than £700 on the day with various rounds of golf donated by golf clubs following a request for auction prizes to be auctioned off afterwards to help raise more money.

Boots, who Jack’s mum Karen works for, agreed to cash match for £500 and Barclays, who Dave’s sister works for, gave £750 making a total of more than £2,000.

Prizes and medals were donated by the Empire Club, in Lancing. For more information, visit www.myotubulartrust.com
