A golf challenge is taking place at Ramsey to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.  

Ashley Butten, 46, from Sawtry, is part of a team of eight men, from the Admiral Wells Golf Society in Holme (near Yaxley) who are taking part in the charity event. 

The event known as ‘The Prostate Cancer Big Golf Race’ will take place on June 17 at Ramsey Golf Club.  

The men have set a challenge of 72 holes of golf for 26 miles in just one day.  

They have already exceeded their £1,000 target but hope to raise as much money as possible.
