The Lord-Lieutenant of Bedfordshire and Captain’s Charity Golf Day was held at the Bedfordshire Golf Club, Stagsden on Sunday, September 14 when about £10,000 was raised for charity.

The Lord Lieutenant, Helen Nellis, is a member of the club and the club captain this year is her husband, Professor Joe Nellis.

The event was a sellout with more than 100 people attending in perfect weather conditions. An auction and raffle was held with lots and prizes donated by individuals and businesses. Around £10,000 was raised on the day in aid of Cancer Research UK and the Beds and Northants MS Therapy Centre in Bedford.

The Lord-Lieutenant and captain were overwhelmed by the support and thank all who supported the event.
