When Glyn Bishop had a heart attack during a round of golf at Gorleston three years ago it was the actions of his playing partners, and the prompt arrival of the East Anglian Air Ambulance, which saved his life.
Glyn's son Marcus decided to organise a competition at Caldecott Hall as a means of saying thankyou, while also raising money for the charity.
And after a successful event he was able to hand over the impressive sum of £3,643.15.
It was an emotional day for the family, with Maurice recalling the day a game of golf almost ended in tragedy.
'My father collapsed on the 18th hole,' he said. 'John Bidwell carried out CPR for nearly 10 minutes while John Smith waited for the ambulance and Andrew Crisp contacted the emergency services. My father was put in an induced coma and taken by air to seek medical care. The services of his friends and the Air Ambulance saved his life.'
