A golf day raised just over £9,000 for a bone cancer charity in memory of a Weston girl who died from the disease.
The fundraiser at Worlebury Golf Course is held every year in memory of 11-year-old Mary Collard who died in 2012.
Her family have been raising money for the Bone Cancer Research Trust since then, and the golf day, organised because Mary was a keen golfer herself, raised £9,002 on Saturday.
Those taking part enjoyed refreshments on the eighth green, an auction and music by the Baskervilles.
Mary’s mum Sue said: “We had 41 teams and it was such a busy day. We would like to thank everyone for their continued support, we couldn’t do it without you.”
The Collard family’s fundraising has reached £470,251.
Sue is planning to organise a bingo evening in October to boost the total even further.
Details of that fundraiser can be found nearer the time by searching for Team Bones on Facebook.
