The annual Duncan’s Charity Golf Day held at Leyland Golf Club raised £6,195 for Derian House Children’s Hospice.

Founded 20 years ago by former businessman Ken Duncan and his son-in-law, Lee Duncan, the event topped last year’s total by more than £3,000, with 24 teams - a mixture of female and male golfers - competing in an 18 hole Stableford competition.

Investment manager Hargreave Hale was the main sponsor of the event.
