Retired rugby star Stephen Ferris put down the ball and picked up his clubs to support a charity golf event in Carrick

The former Ireland and Ulster player took part in MindWise’s annual competition at Carrickfergus Golf Club.

The event was organised by Raymond Gray, locally known as the singing taxi driver.

At total of 34 golfers teed off despite the unfavourable weather conditions and over £2000 was raised on the day for MindWise’s Belfast Resource Centre.

MindWise works to transform lives and develop new visions for mental health by challenging stigma and discrimination, and providing services and support.

The charity thanked the McCombe family for sponsoring the Richard McCombe Memorial Cup and prizes. It also extended thanks to “Carrickfergus Golf Club for hosting the event, Gardiner Brothers Ltd, Noir Fine Foods and to all who support the Belfast Resource Centre and competition each year”.
