A GOLF Day has raised £800 for a charity that supports people who are visually impaired.

Jim McKeever, pub landlord from The Winning Post in Worcester, organised an 18-hole charity golf event in aid of raising funds for Worcester Talking News – a charity that provide recordings and listener equipment to people who are visually impaired.

The charity supports his wife, Anne, who uses the resources.

Worcester Talking News, in Wyld’s Lane, collected a cheque for £800 from The Winning Post following the Golf Day.

The money will be used the charity's ceiling, the cost of which is expected to exceed £7,000.

Elizabeth Hill from the Worcester Talking News said: “We would like to thank Bill Evans and Jim and Anne McKeever at The Winning Post, and of course everyone who participated in the Golf Day for taking us to their hearts.

“This donation is very much appreciated and will be put to good use.”

Bill Evans, organiser of the event said: “It was a wonderful day and we are happy to have raised the funds for a great cause.

"I am chuffed we raised £800.

“I would like to thank all the golfers for playing and the hospitality at the Bewdley Pines Golf Club.”

The event took place on May 22 at Bewdley Pines Golf Club.
