GENEROUS members of Spalding Golf Club raised an impressive £5,000 for charity last season.

Club captains for 2011 Keith Holland and Eileen Bridge, whose respective years of office ended recently, were left delighted after all proceeds from charity and open days, raffles, donations and many other fundraising activities were collected.

A cheque for £4,000 was presented to Geoff Douglass from the the Prostate Cancer Charity, which will go towards all forms of research into the most common cancer in men.

The other £1,000 was handed to Coun Angela Newton, chairman of the League of Friends for the Johnson Community Hospital, for equipment in the urology department and general ward requirements.

Holland and Bridge chose the respective organisations as their chosen charities.
