The fundraiser, which was organised by family-run financial advisers Absolute Sense, was held at Ely Golf Club.

The money will go towards Absolute Sense's chosen charity for 2019, which is Alzheimer's Research UK.

Holly Noon from the charity joined club members to talk about living with Alzheimer's. She brought along an interactive viewing device so players could experience what it is like for someone living with Alzheimer's.
