A charity golf day is being held in Wrexham later this year in an attempt to raise funds for specialist cancer equipment across North Wales.

Two senior figures at Wrexham Maelor hospital have teamed up with Clays Golf Club to try and secure specialist equipment to treat prostate cancer across the region

Urology specialist, Professor Iqbal Shergill and Iwan Bonds, renal services manager at the Maelor have teamed up with Clays Golf to announce they will be spearheading a Charity Golf Day in June.

Professor Shergill said he was extremely grateful to Clays and their general manager Josh Green for their support in organising the day.

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

Malcom Williams, chairman of a local prostate cancer support group and a member of Clays added: “We are at an advanced stage to raise funds to purchase a Cryotherapy machine and we are hoping with the event help we can get closer to the £60,000 needed to purchase it. Such technology is a non-invasive way of treating recurring prostate cancer cells and uses extreme cold to destroy cancer cells."

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