A CHARITY golf day is expected to raise at least £5,000 for the charity Mencap.

The event, organised by Sid Sewell, saw 72 players take to the Royston Golf Club course on Therfield Heath on Friday.

Mr Seward, who runs the Royston-based company LB Precision in Orchard Road, has been organising the charity golf day for the past 23 years.

The event started when Mr Seward and his partner Bob Hunt, who died 10 years ago, decided to raise money for the charity.

"It's one of those events which seems to have grown stronger each year," said Mr Seward.

He said he expected fund-raising from the event to produce "a bumper year".

"We raised £2,500 last year and we're looking to double that this year," he said.

The event was sponsored by Johnson Matthey and Barclays Bank, and car dealer John R Ford sponsored a hole-in-one competition.

The hole-in-one competition alone raised £720 - and no-one playing managed to succeed.

"It was an absolutely brilliant day," said Mr Seward.
