A man is taking on a golf challenge after being impressed by his wife’s fundraising feat while seven months pregnant.

George Webb, 40, from Watford, is hoping to raise £1,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support when he takes part in the longest golf day fundraiser at the Grim’s Dyke Golf Club on June 17.

Mr Webb was inspired to raise money for charity by his wife, who took part in the Moonwalk London Charity Walk in 2014 while seven months pregnant.

The charity event will include a 72-hole game, with an overall walking distance of 24 miles as the use of golf buggies is not allowed.

Mr Webb said: “My wife signed up the year before she was pregnant but still decided to do it, she did all her check ups and the doctor was happy for her to take part. It took her 11 hours to complete.

“She does a lot for charity and she does everything she can do to help so I wanted to take a leaf out of her book.”

Mr Webb picked Macmillan Cancer Support in memory of his mother, who died from leukaemia in 2009 when she was 54.

He said: “My nan and grandad also passed away from cancer, I would like to give something back and I thought I could help since its worth doing something to help those less fortunate.”

Mr Webb will be taking part in the challenge with his teammates Joe Tinsley and Tommy Culverhouse.

He added: “I hope our fundraising will provide some money to save a life or pay for a nurse to be able to look after someone with cancer.“I want to try and do something for charity every two to three months possibly with my wife next time.”
