A total of 27 teams, made up of 108 players, took to the course for the hospice, which offers care for patients with severe illnesses spanning Grasmere to Garstang and from Sedbergh to Morecambe.

Refreshments were provided by Mint Café Lancaster and The Bakehouse Kendal to maintain the players' morale.

Participants commented that they have "never been to such a well organised charity Golf Day" and that "they'll be entering more teams next year".

The triumphant team was led by Ian Parker from sponsor Porsche Centre South Lakes, with a score of 89.

Following closely behind were BA Fitness, Beckside Golf Club and Lars Communications in second, third and fourth place.

Spectators and players alike were also treated to an unexpected flypast by the Red Arrows through the clear skies.

Raffles and an auction added even more funds to the sum.

Prizes were donated by multiple community and national businesses, as well as several golf clubs.

Emma Farmer, events and corporate fundraiser for the hospice, said: "It is great to see so many local businesses put teams in for the day and enjoy themselves, all whilst raising money for their Hospice so that we can continue to provide the care we do in their communities for their families, friends, colleagues and customers.

"It was lovely to see familiar faces as well as new and we really appreciate their continued support."
