The day at the Cotswold Golf Club was organised by cousins Gary and Paul Findlay in honour of their friend Martin Pratley, who was recently diagnosed with the debilitating disease.

Forty-four teams took part in the 18-hole course, with over 200 friends and family joining them later for the evening fund-raising event.

The event was the 16th annual golf day organised by the family behind Findlay Construction, who have raised an incredible £85,277 for local charities over the years.
