A well-known football physiotherapist from Wrexham is taking on a golfing challenge in aid of Prostate Cancer. 

Jon Morris who is well known throughout the town as 'PD' or Pitch Doctor, for his involvement in the local football community.

Jon is going that extra yard, over 6,000 in fact; to show how keen he is to use his golfing hobby to benefit others. 

He has set himself the challenge of completing 72 holes of golf in one day to raise funds for the Wrexham Prostate Cancer Support Group.

Jon will complete the challenge at the end of June at Clays Golf Club and has set up a GoFundMe page to keep track of donations, he said:

"I have several close friends who have been diagnosed as having prostate cancer and well aware that 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer in their lifetime. 

"Prostate Cancer is now the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK, killing one man every 45 minutes in the UK. That's the same time it takes to play three holes of golf.

"That's why I'm golfing the distance and taking on The Big Golf Race, to keep men in the game for longer.

"So please support me and help me raise the much-needed funds for this fantastic cause."

It is hoped that funds raised by Jon will go towards helping the group purchase a Cryotherapy machine for the local Maelor Hospital.

Wrexham Prostate Cancer Support Group's next meeting is at 7pm on Wednesday, May 4 at the Trevor Arms, Marford.
