Gordon Marriott Memorial Golf Day 2018

This year’s Gordon Marriott Memorial Golf Day took place at Blackley Golf Club, Middleton on Friday 7 September.

The day has been held annually since 2011 in memory of the late Gordon Marriott who passed away from mesothelioma in 2010.

His daughter and son-in-law, Natalie and Chris Hazelhurst, set up the annual golf day to raise awareness of mesothelioma and raise money for the Greater Manchester Asbestos Victims Support Group (GMAVSG).
