GOLFERS clubbed together to raise more £12,000 for Dogs for the Disabled.

Redditch Golf Club’s captains Phil Guise and Ange Taylor held two charity golf days to raise funds for the cause, which creates partnerships between people living with disability and specially-trained assistance dogs.

The first golf competition raised £5,700 and included many of the club’s private and corporate members, while the ladies’ day teed off with Mrs Taylor, Jenny Dalloway and Carol Loveitt, adding another £2,000 to the pot of money already raised.

Mr Guise said: “Those who took part or came along to support the charity day were able to meet Sandie, our first Labrador puppy in training.

“Sandie is a beautiful reminder of why we chose Dogs for the Disabled as our 2014 charity and why training these life-changing dogs is so important.”

Mrs Taylor added: “The charity monies keep rolling in and following on from our auction at the summer ball and other various donations received and fund-raising events we are pleased to have raised more than £12,000 for Dogs for the Disabled so far this year.

“But we are not finished yet and we would urge both members and non-members to help us raise as much money for this very valuable charity as possible.”
