Big-hearted Leighton Buzzard golfers have chipped in with more than £3,300 to support pioneering medical developments and patient care at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.

Members of the Plum Duffs, a group of golfers who meet for weekly competitions at Leighton’s Plantation Road course, completed their fundraising actvities for the year with a competition last Thursday which attracted more than 100 entrants.

The event was organised by retired Leighton turf accountant Geoff Dimmock whose Plum Duff colleagues and supporters have now raised more than £45,000 over the past 12 years, donated to a range of local organistions and charities providing help and suport for young and elderly people in need. The golf competition was won by TonyDavies with 46 points, with Steve Molyneaux runner-up with 43points ahead of Tom Day and Derek Ellam.

Mr Dimmock said: “We very much appreciate the support we receive from businesses in and around Leighton Buzzard and to other golf clubs that donated complimentary vouchers to play their courses. Everyone had a great day, but the real winner was the Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust which provides invaluable help to families at times of great stress and uncertainty.”
