Kind-hearted golfers from Tydd St Giles donated presents for disadvantaged youngsters as part of a charity appeal.
Tydd St Giles Golf & Country Club took part in The Salvation Army Christmas Present Appeal.
Staff and leisure centre members donated gifts suitable from birth to 16-years-old.
Tydd golf club captain Vinney Day also donated £250 from his captain’s charity fund.
Until mid-December, many Salvation Army churches and centres across the UK ran a present appeal.
