FOR the benefit of charities, 80 golfers braved appalling weather conditions on Friday last at the Rotary Club of Otley Chevin’s annual Charity golf day at Otley Golf Club.

They raised £2,500 for the Teenage Cancer Trust, The Alzheimer’s Society and other Rotary charities.

The winning team were accountants BPR Heaton, who also won a cheque for £250 to give to their nominated charity, the Motor Neurone Disease Association, given by the event’s major sponsor, Premvan.
