A local fundraiser is setting the ambitious aim of running a mile for every hole the Saunton Golf Club captain can complete during a 12-hour charity challenge.

The golf club will be hosting the day on September 14, with captain Stuart Charnock taking to the course for 12 hours to raise money for hospital charity Over and Above.

For every hole Stuart completes, Rick Fielder, who leads the Chatty Places running club with his wife Liz, will run a mile around the perimeter of the course.

Stuart said: “When Rick suggested the challenge to me I couldn’t resist taking it up.”

The money raised by the two men will go towards new equipment and care for cancer patients at the Seamoor chemotherapy and day treatment unit.
