Time is running out for golfers to sign up for a charity event to raise funds for Billy Lee, who lost a leg and half a hip due to cancer.

Harrison Murray estate agent Ben Carter is spearheading the charity golf day next month, supporting a whole community’s efforts to help a young bone cancer sufferer get back on his own two feet with a prosthetic leg and hip.

The event, which includes a raffle and auction, takes place on June 10 at Tydd St Giles Golf Club.

Mr Carter, a sales negotiator at the Harrison Murray Wisbech branch, said: “Cancer in general touches the lives of so many people – everyone seems to know someone who has been affected.

“Billy’s story in particular has touched the hearts of so many people in the community and further afield.

“His courage has been remarkable, and this is our small way of supporting Billy and his family – made all the poignant because he is a young, local guy.”

Billy’s girlfriend Shirley Cooper has recently joined the Wisbech branch of The Nottingham (Building Society), which shares its joint office with Harrison Murray.

She said: “Billy has gone, and continues to go, through a huge physically challenging and emotional journey. Both he and everyone who knows and loves Billy is so very grateful and moved by all the support.

“Our huge thanks to Ben for organising this event which we hope will be a big success.”

The Golf Day will include bacon rolls with tea/coffee on arrival, morning and afternoon sessions, competitions, an awards ceremony, barbecue, raffle and auction.

The cost of entering a team of four is £40 per player. Anyone interested in putting in a team, donating a prize or offering help can get in touch with Ben at Harrison Murray on 01945 465 432 or e-mail
