Organiser John Bleasdale thanks everyone who contributed to the event, which saw 16 teams compete in glorious weather.

“Tesco Bank, a team from Glasgow, won the tournament but the charity teams representing CHAS and St Andrew’s Hospice also did well,” he said.

Snack and drinks sales will have done a lot to boost the takings going to these good causes too. John added: “We sold out of cakes and candy, as well as all the drinks donated to us by Barr’s.”

On Monday John had not yet had a chance to count all the cash raised, but will soon be presenting it to the charities.
