Helsby GC recently hosted their 17th Merseyside Entertainers Golfing Association (MEGA) Day. After everyone had enjoyed a fine afternoon of golf, the highlight of the day was the presentation of powered wheelchairs to 2 local youngsters.

The first chair was presented to 10 year old Isabella Gray from Liverpool. The second chair went to 14 year old Tom Gate from Rostherne near Knutsford. Both Isabella and Tom are enjoying the independence their new wheelchairs are providing.

Winners of the golf competition on the day were Captain Graham Poland, Glenn Makin, Al Griffiths together with their MEGA player Brian Kramer.

In the evening, the clubhouse was packed with members and supporters who enjoyed the great entertainment provided by the MEGA stars. It was a fantastic evening thoroughly enjoyed by everyone! Thanks go to all our supporters and the MEGA team who helped raise £2,300 for the Appeal.

The Powered Wheelchair Appeal is a registered charity, a previous winner of the Trinity Mirror group “Champion of Champions” and has been fundraising for 34 years and provided 378 powered wheelchairs to local deserving youngsters with special needs.

We are now looking forward to 2019 when we are going to present our 400th Powered Wheelchair at a special Glitz and Glamour Ball on Saturday 23rd November 2019 at Chester Racecourse. If you would be interested in attending the Ball, please put the date in your diary and let our secretary know by email on This email address is being protected from spambots.

We are also looking for sponsors of the event & donations of auction and raffle prizes. Again, if you would like to help, please contact our secretary, Penny Ainsworth.
