A former England player went from the pitch to the putt to help raise £2,381 funds for charity.
Alan Kennedy, an ex Liverpool defender, played a round of golf with staff from King’s Lynn construction company, Chalcroft as part of a fundraising day for Macmillian.
At the event, which was held at Barnham Broom, near Norwich, Alan also gave a talk about his career.
Emily Morgan from Macmillian said she was very grateful for the donation that was presented to her.
She said: “Local Macmillan grants support hundreds of people, helping them to afford some of the simplest amenities. People affected by cancer can gain or lose weight and our grants can help them afford suitable clothing.
“If someone is feeling the cold due to treatment, our grants can support them afford extra heating. We also provide grants for anyone struggling to afford travel fares which allow them to get to hospital for treatment. Thanks to the support of Chalcroft we can continue with these grants.”
The company handles a wide range of projects, from simple refurbishment to multi-million pound factories in the food and drink, warehouse and distribution, industrial and commercial and renewable energy sectors.
Managing director Mark Reeve said: “Chalcroft has supported Macmillian for a number of years now and will be extremely satisfying to see this relationship grow further as Chalcroft expands.”
