Starting at 5am and finishing at 7pm, the group known as ‘Spider Pigs’ contended with rainy and stormy weather, while raising money for the Cancer Council.

Spider Pigs raised $2,800, which brought its four-year total beyond $11,000.

It was the second time the line-up comprised Steve Bichel, Matthew Bichel, Matthew Hauser, Daniel Hauser, Sean Charles and Grant Hogan.

Steve said the highlight of the most recent occasion was simply finishing the four rounds, considering the weather.

Special mention was made to the Kilcoy Golf Club for its continued support.

“We’ve all been impacted by cancer in some way, so it’s very important for us to contribute to causes such as the ‘Longest Day’ fundraising,” Steve said.
