Alan Waites, honorary secretary, said: “Glenn passed away aged 42 and was a very well respected and active member of the club. This is our way of giving something back for the care he received.”

The £550 donation is from last year’s tournament which was well supported and featured entertainment on the night along with a day of golfing. The event featured an array of fantastic prizes such as bikes, barbecues and gazebos.

Simon Brass, East Yorkshire area fundraiser for Saint Catherine’s, said: “The money raised will go towards caring for our patients, both in the hospice and at home. It is very much appreciated.”
