The Group Golf Societies from both Wigan Group and Chorley Group played against each other for the Mike Wareing trophy, named in memory of a former member of the Wigan Group who passed away ten years ago.

The teams played at Hart Common Golf Club in Westhoughton where owner Peter Roberts refunded the charges for the green fees paid by the players in order to play. The fees were added to other monies raised at Masonic meetings held throughout the year.

George Seddon, Chairman of Wigan Group - which retained the trophy - said: "Over the last ten years we have raised £3,500 through competitions for the Mike Wareing Trophy between the two groups which has all been given to the Hospice or Derian House."

The freemasons were accompanied in their visit to the Hospice by accompanied Mike's widow Gill, his son Gary and his grandson Oscar.
