Golfers have raised more than £3,000 for Prostate Cancer UK following a charity event near Norwich.

Around 80 players attended the senior's charity day at Dunston Hall, which included an auction in the afternoon.

Seniors captain Richard Franklin said: 'The weather was great and several of the guests donated some very generous prizes to be auctioned later in the day, which helped towards the total fund.'

The winner of the Stableford Competition, the Harold Harman Trophy and Motocaddy Golf bag was Jim McCarthy with 42 points.

Second place with 40 points was Maurice Robinson, whose prize was a golf trolley, and third place was won by Ian Percival with 38 points who won an Under Armour golf shirt. The Best Ladies' Prize, was won by Lynda Love with 36 points. A cheque for £3,000 was presented to Michael Gibbs, on behalf of Prostate Cancer UK. But Mr Franklin said the final donation could exceed £4,000.
