She will tee off her marathon early on May 29 at Withnell club Oak Royal and complete the round on the final green at her home course before nightfall.

“The route has been carefully planned and with help from my friends at my club and the East Lancashire Ladies’ Golf Association we are aiming to raise £1,500 towards the running costs of the ambulance service,” said Susan.

“It costs the charity £6m a year to operate and maintain their three helicopters and each one takes £3.50 for one minute of fuel. To rescue a golfer in distress from Pleasington Golf Club would amount to more than £1,500 which is why we have set this as our initial target.

“To go over this figure would mean the world to me. To know that our efforts could cover the costs on potentially saving the life of just one East Lancashire golfer will make the whole event worthwhile.”

Susan’s schedule is: Oak Royal (08:00), Darwen (08:45), Dunscar (09:35), Turton (10:10), Greenmount (10:50), Rossendale (11:30), Baxenden (12:10), Burnley (12:55), Townley (13:25), Nelson (14:05), Accrington (14:55), Great Harwood (15:35), Whalley (16:10), Clitheroe (16:45), Mytton Fold (17:20), Wilpshire (17:55), Blackburn (18:30), Pleasington (18:55).

North West Air Ambulance is also Pleasington’s charity for the year and you can donate via the website www.susancaton.org which links to JustGiving.
