A 72-hole golf marathon was just one of a number of events held at King’s Lynn Golf Club to help raise £5,082 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

The club’s 2017 captain Blair Rule had chosen the trust as his charity for the year and handed over the money last week.

Alison Edwards, from the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, said: “We are so incredibly greateful to King’s Lynn Golf Club for their amazing support over the last year.

“We feel honoured that we were chosen as one of their charities of the year, not only to receive funds but also very much-needed awareness of this terrible condition.”

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the only UK-wide charity dedicated to “fighting for a life unlimited by cystic fibrosis” for everyone affected by the condition.

“Since we started in 1964 we have dedicated ourselves to promoting excellence in research and clinical care, as well as providing practical support and advice to people with cystic fibrosis and their families,” added Mrs Edwards.

“Our mission is to create a world where being born with cystic fibrosis no longer means a life-long struggle, when everyone living with the condition will be able to look forward to a long, healthy life.

“We can only do this with the support from individuals, businesses, clubs and societies as we do not receive any funding from the government.”

Mr Rule said he chose the trust because his granddaughter was born with the condition.
