Ely On Par Golf Club and Driving Range held a charity golf and fun day in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society on Saturday.

Teaming up with Southgate Packaging, players swung their clubs as part of an 18-hole event, consisting of 12 teams.

The evening also hosted a raffle, stalls and other attractions, with the packaging firm supplying golf balls for the 'guess the number of balls' competition.

Graham Mawe, managing director at Ely On Par Golf Club, said: "The whole day went very well, blustery and a challenge for the golf, but overall a great day.

"We raised over £1,100 for the charity, with a £130 contribution from the Southgate balls."

Alzheimer's Society is the only UK charity that campaigns for change, funds research to find a cure and supports people living with dementia today. Dementia is the UK's biggest killer whereby someone develops the disease every three minutes.
