Join Tyrone and Kirk's charity golf day - August 31

Coronation Street lads Alan Halsall (Tyrone Dobbs) and Andy Whyment (Kirk Sutherland) have joined forces for charity with Tyrone and Kirk's golf day to take place on August 31 this year.

The charity they're supporting is called Joining Jack and Alan and Andy are hoping to raise thousands for the appeal through the star-studded event on August 31. Alan is married to fellow actor Lucy Jo Hudson, one of the nine ambassadors of Joining Jack.

Joining Jack was set up by Andy Johnson and wife Alex after they discovered their son Jack has Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The four-year-old appears perfectly healthy, and has no idea that he is suffering from a terminal illness which – over the coming years – will eat away at his body.

Lucy Jo Hudson said: “I don’t play golf myself, but I will be there on the day to serve tea and coffee and help out where I can. In the past we’ve had some ex-footballers coming along, the Coronation Street lot – Kym Marsh was there last year – and it’s really relaxed, and really good fun. Then afterwards we have a meal and a few drinks, so it should be a really good day. And it’s all for a great cause, all for Joining Jack, which is what it’s about.”

More details of the golf day – at the Worlsey Marriot – can be found on the website tyroneandkirksgolfday.co.uk and follow them on twitter @Tyrone_KirkGolf  and follow the charity on twitter @alljoinjack
