Annual golf day at Saltburn raises £1,650

64 golfers took part in this year's event which over the last 17 years has raised almost £32,000 for CLIC Sargent.

This amount is enough to pay for nine months of a CLIC Sargent Social Worker’s time whilst they meet children and young people with cancer, and their families and help them to understand and cope with the emotional, practical and financial effects of cancer.

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Lindsay Kay said: “I think it’s wonderful that Des keeps organising this event for us every year and puts his heart and soul into it.

"Every year, without fail, he manages to raise a fantastic sum of money for us and I want him to know just how grateful we are for his continued support.

"He couldn’t do it without the help of all the local businesses such as Sainsbury’s in Guisborough and the local Co-operative stores who donate prizes so thank you to them too.”
