Golf day aims to secure specialized cancer equipment in the region

A charity golf day will be held at Wrexham later this year to raise money for specialist cancer equipment in North Wales.

Two senior officials from Wrexham Maelor Hospital have teamed up with Clays Golf Club to try to get specialist equipment to treat prostate cancer across the region

Urology specialist Professor Iqbal Shergill and Maelor Renal Services Manager Iwan Bonds have teamed up with Clays Golf to announce they will be hosting a charity golf day in June.

Professor Shergill said he was extremely grateful to Clays and their chief executive Josh Green for their support in organizing the day.

The event is scheduled for Wednesday June 8th and they are looking to attract 144 golfers in teams of four to participate. A two-course meal at the end of the game is also part of the package.

Malcom Williams, president of a local prostate cancer support group and member of Clays, added: “We are at an advanced stage in raising funds to purchase a cryotherapy machine and we hope that with the help of the event, we can get closer to the £60,000 needed. to buy it. Such technology is a non-invasive way to treat recurring prostate cancer cells and uses extreme cold to destroy cancer cells. »

Mr Williams chairs regular meetings of the Wrexham Prostate Support Group, with the next taking place on Wednesday February 2 at the Trevor Arms, Marford at 7pm.
