Golfers raised £7,000 for a children’s charity at a coffee morning today.

West Essex Golf Club Ladies’ Section sold toys, homemade cakes, plants and much more to collect

the cash for The Dream Factory, a charity which grants the wishes of children with severe illnesses.

Around 45 members of the golf group helped organise and run the 12 stalls between 10am and 1pm at the golf club in Bury Road, Chingford, and had around 200 visitors.

Club captain Barbara Ingram, 65, said: “It went so well but I was in tears. We got very emotional because it’s a good amount of money and it’s going to a great cause.”

The golfers are due to present the money to the charity at an event at the club on February 26.
