KIND-hearted golfers have presented new electric wheelchairs to two children with disabilities.

South Cheshire Masonic Golf Society has been providing wheelchairs to local youngsters for 40 years and the latest presentations were made at Eaton Golf Club.

The society began in 1971 and started supporting the Peter Alliss Wheelchair Crusade one year later following an introduction by society member and businessman Harry Morgan.

This year’s recipients – five-year-old Carys and 13-year-old Owen – were presented with their powered wheelchairs by society captain Bill Lloyd and president Gil Auckland.

Four society members have qualified for the Peter Alliss Masters Tournament in Elie, Scotland, next month in recognition of their fundraising efforts.

Commentator and professional golfer Peter Alliss attends the tournament along with famous faces from the sporting world with more wheelchairs being presented to youngsters.
