Local golfers presented a cheque for £18,125 to Cancer Research UK last month.

The money was raised during a biennial event at Wanstead Golf Club, attended by over 100 players. The gathering – which took place in October – included a BBQ, karaoke competition and a raffle and auction. “The captain, Steve Johnston, and I arrange this charity event every two years. This is our fifth time over the last 10 years, and we have now raised over £40,000 altogether,” said golfer and local handyman Gary Cox.
