A Wisbech business has raised over £3,000 for the NHS charity trust after hosting a charity golf day.
Luke Connolly, owner of Connolly & Son building and groundworks contractors, organised the day where 28 people took part in an 18-hole competition.
The day, held at Old Nene Golf and Country Club in Ramsey, involved a raffle, an auction, as well as a mixture of hole sponsors.
Luke said: “So far, we have raised £3760 for the NHS charity trust.
“My dad had Covid and was in intensive care for three weeks.
“They’re extra-special saviours.”
The day was free of charge, with the country club wavering the fee and instead, donating the money to Luke's chosen charity.
