A Wisbech business has raised over £3,000 for the NHS charity trust after hosting a charity golf day.
Luke Connolly, owner of Connolly & Son building and groundworks contractors, organised the day where 28 people took part in an 18-hole competition.
The day, held at Old Nene Golf and Country Club in Ramsey, involved a raffle, an auction, as well as a mixture of hole sponsors.
Luke said: “So far, we have raised £3760 for the NHS charity trust.
“My dad had Covid and was in intensive care for three weeks.

The day was free of charge, with the country club wavering the fee and instead, donating the money to Luke's chosen charity.
