A charity day at Market Rasen Golf Club has raised more than £800 for Lincolnshire Sport.

Businesses from across the county took part in the event, organised by the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce.

A total of 17 teams took part in the competition, which was won by Alchemy Dynamics from Sleaford, closely followed by Market Rasen Golf Club and Ruddocks of Lincoln who came in third place.

Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce area president Paul Banton said: “The Lincolnshire Chamber’s annual golf day is a great social occasion where businesses can enjoy a bit of fresh air as well as network with other organisations from the county.

“The event is an opportunity for us to support one of our charity members, and this year we have been proud to support Lincolnshire Sport.”

Lincolnshire Sport chief executive Janet Inman said: “Events like this are not only a great way to raise funds to support us in developing support and physical activity across the whole county but also an opportunity for us to engage with new businesses and share our message.

“Donations made at today’s golf day will help support activities and projects across Lincolnshire.”

Local businesses made donations for a raffle and Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce staff baked cakes to help raise additional 
funds.
