Four Tydd St Giles golfers completed an epic day challenge to raise thousands of pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

For their Longest Golf Day Challenge, Mark Whittaker, Malcolm Stead, Ian Edrupt and Neil John, who are known as the Border Hoppers, played rounds at Tydd St Giles, Sutton Bridge, Feltwell and Suffolk Golf Club on the same day.

The team were supported by helpers Nikki Stead, Gail Edrupt, Andy Jackson, Paul Amos and Andy Morris.

The foursome have already raised more than £3,000 and there is still sponsorship to be counted.
