Gen­er­ous golfers’ boost

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

GOLFERS at a Peter­bor­ough club raised £1,300 to help in the bat­tle against can­cer.

Or­ton Mead­ows Golf Club ladies’ cap­tain Bar­bara Bird named Can­cer Re­search UK as her char­ity of the year and over the course of the last 12 months the club has raised the amount for the cause with tour­na­ments, raf­fles and auc­tions. An­nette Bee­ton, from the char­ity, said she was thrilled with the amount that had been raised, which will go to­wards fund­ing can­cer tri­als at the on­col­ogy unit at Peter­bor­ough City Hospi­tal.

She said: “It is ab­so­lutely bril­liant. We would like to thank them so much for be­ing so gen­er­ous.”
