A quilt made by the Southwold Golf Club Quilters has helped raise more than £2,000 for charity.

The quilt, which is made from more than 1200 pieces of fabric, has been on display in Collen and Clare in Southwold.

And it will be raffled in aid of Parkinson's UK at a coffee morning on March 30 at Southwold Golf Club.

Inspiration behind its creation came when the Quilters of Southwold Golf Club decided to support incoming Ladies Captain, Jackie Selby, by making a quilt in aid of Parkinson's UK, her chosen charity for her year- following the death of her husband Peter Selby in 2014, who had suffered for a number of years from the disease.

A bridge drive will be held at the Southwold Golf Club on March 6 in aid of the cause.
