MORE than 40 players helped make an annual charity golf day the biggest in the event’s ten-year history.

More golfers than ever took part and helped raise an impressive £1,600 to provide treats throughout the year for the disabled people who use Hovenden Resource Centre day care service in Fleet.

The day involved players taking part in a nine-hole round in the morning, followed by 18 holes in the afternoon and a meal.

The Leonard Cheshire disability service centre team leader Sue Forman said: “It was a brilliant day and I would just like to thank the businesses who sponsored the holes and donated raffle prizes because without them it wouldn’t be possible.

“Also, Ivan Forman who gives up a lot of his own time to organise it every year and to Worths and the players who let us use the golf course.

“We also couldn’t do it without the volunteers who help on the day.”

The singles competition was won by Mick Ebbage, who took home a trophy.
