MEMBERS of the Naunton Downs Golf Club and their friends have raised £3,400 for local cancer charity Maggie’s by taking part in events as diverse as swimming the equivalent of the English Channel to selling home made cakes.

Deborah Davis, 2013 ladies' captain at Naunton Downs, said: “Having been through cancer in 2008 I wanted to mark my captain's year by fundraising for Maggie’s in Cheltenham. I would like to thank everybody at Naunton Downs Golf Club for all their hard work in fundraising.”

Forty people took part in the 34-mile swimming relay last September at Pittville with others joining them from as far away as Bahrain and Spain.
