A charity golf day has been held in memory of Andy Stevenson who died aged 40 last September.
Over 80 golfers took part in the event held at the Rookery Park Golf Club, in Carlton Colville – the place Mr Stevenson enjoyed playing.
Organisers said the event has so far raised over £4,000 with the final total still being counted.
Mr Stevenson lost his battle with leukaemia and before his death he wanted to raise money for the Sandra Chapman Unit which had cared for and supported him and his family.
Gordon Swan organised the eagerly anticipated day with friends - which culminated in the golf day- hailed as a big success for everyone involved.

'Although the weather was dull and dreary, the atmosphere was bright and some good golf was played,' Mr Swan said.
'Thanks to the response of many local businesses, families and individuals the prizes on offer ranged from a holiday for four on the broads, hire of a sports car for the weekend to a bottle of wine, and without all these generous people the day would not have been as successful.'
