Ben Coleman has completed a mammoth 100-hole marathon challenge at Bury St Edmunds Golf Club, helping to raise more than £1,200 for Crohn’s and Colitis UK and Papworth Continuing Care Unit.

After accepting the challenge from men’s captain Terry Edwards, the 25-year-old teed off at 5am on Wednesday morning and played non-stop around the clock finally finishing at around 9pm.

And despite conceding the difficulty of the challenge, Coleman was left delighted with his achievement for such worthy causes.

“This sort of challenge is something I’ve always wanted to do,” he said.

“ Apart from the blistered feet it has been good fun and I’ve really enjoyed it.

“I live to play golf and to do something like this is amazing. Who wouldn’t want to spend the day out in the sunshine.

“It has all been for two great charities and that makes it all worthwhile.

“This is something I’m now looking to roll out annually in the future because it is great to raise some money for such worthy causes.”
