A charity golf day organised by an Ely firm of chartered financial planners raised enough money to counsel up to 200 young people through the NSPCC’s Childline service.
Absolute Sense IFA Ltd raised around £3,500 at their sixth annual charity golf day at Girton Golf Club on July 14.
The funds will be given to Childline through the Cambridgeshire NSPCC branch.
The amount raised is enough to train two Childline counsellors who will speak to up to 100 young people each in their first year of volunteering.
June Waggitt, director of Absolute Sense, said: “It is a pleasure to fundraise for the local Cambridgeshire NSPCC branch, whose volunteers do so much in Ely and the surrounding area to help vulnerable children.
