The annual charity golf day organised by the Rotary Club of Market Rasen proved to be another success.

However, it was the team of P Wiseman ( Kenwick Park) K Bristow (Cave Castle) J Moody (Kenwick Park) and A Stanley (Laceby Manor) who took the top spot, with 92 points.

Behind them by just one point was the homegrown team of R Ryan, R Pearce , E Pashley and R Crowe ( all Market Rasen Golf Club).

Taking the third spot, on 88 points, was the team of D Straw (Market Rasen), S Steeples (Market Rasen), S Graves Sleaford) and T Marshall (Sleaford).

Taking the prize for Nearest the Pin on the 5th Hole was A Green from Thonock Park and Nearest the Pin on the 18th Hole was J Ward of Woodhall Spa Golf Club.

Air Ambulance representative Faye Nam went along to present the prizes at the end of what was a very successful and profitable day.

The Rotary Golf Day realised a profit of £3,300 for the Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.

This means, over the years, the Rotary Club of Market Rasen will have donated more than £25,000 to the life saving activity of the Ambucopter.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance and in that time it has responded to more than 20,000 life-threatening missions.
