Thousands of pounds have been raised by Tydd St Giles Golf Club for a homeless charity in the Fens.
Club captain Giles Stearne and vice-captain Mark Johnson announced they would be donating £4,000 to The Ferry Project, which provides accommodation and life skills to homeless people in order to help them live independently.
A golf club spokesperson said: "Giles has always had the homeless in this area close to his heart. This year as the golf club's men's captain has given him a great incentive to support such a good local cause.
