ST Ann’s Hospice’s fundraising golf day went swingingly this year, raising more than £18,000 for the charity.

Players from 17 teams across Greater Manchester teed off in the annual event.

Clare Henderson, of the hospice fundraising team, said: “It was a great day, and we were fortunate that the weather was amazing.

"We had a real mix of teams taking part from all sorts of local businesses and other individuals and groups of supporters too.

"Not only was it a fun day of golf, but it raised a fantastic amount in support of our patients and their families too. We’re so grateful to everyone who came along."
