This charity supports sporting and recreational activities for both disadvantaged young people and those with special needs, by supplying specially adapted sports wheelchairs specially adapted minibuses, play and sensory equipment.
Despite torrential rain at times, the 23 teams of four did not let this dampen their spirits as they headed for the halfway house where the ladies were waiting with sausage buns and drinks to fortify them for the back nine which took them ever closer to a hot shower and a delicious meal in the clubhouse.
Actor Leslie Schofield, best known for his role as Jeff Healy in Eastenders between 1997 and 2000 played in the event and assisted Yvonne Wood, chairman of the Lincolnshire Lady Taverners with the prize giving.

Yvonne Wood, chairman of the Lincolnshire Lady Taverners, said: “We like to spend the money raised from events like this locally.
“Recently we purchased a sporting wheelchair for a young man with cerebral palsy and this has changed his life giving him chance to participate in sport as well as boosting his confidence and self esteem.
