Serving soldiers Staff Sergeant, Pete Rogers and Warrant Officer Class 2, Alan Brooks ran the course and played using only one set of clubs and one ball.

They smashed there set time of one hour and 10 minutes and did it on one hour, four minutes.

To get up to the final £1,600 total, Mablethorpe’s British Legion Chairman Col Sweeney and Mark and Jane Reddin of the Poppy Appeal took round charity buckets to raise some extra funds.

Also Graham Dodsworth and Glenda Fern at Woodthorpe Hall made a day of it and held tombola and craft stalls alongside some delicious cakes and held a function in the evening for all to enjoy.

£24,084 has been raised for the Poppy Appeal so far this year, already beating the £22,000 that was raised last year.
