Generous golfers have raised £4,000 for The Papworth Trust which supports disabled and older people.

A variety of events were staged by The Links Golf Club in Newmarket including a charity bridge day, silent auction and raffles.

Club ladies’ captain Lesley Duncan-Edge, said: “We chose to support the trust because they provide essential services for disabled people of all ages in the local community.”

Andrea Chupacova, Papworth Trust community fund-raiser, said: “We are very grateful that the Links Golf Club has raised such an incredible amount of money for us. This will help us support disabled people to have more choice and independence such as youth clubs and centres providing leisure and learning opportunities.”
