West Ham legend Sir Trevor Brooking attended a golf day in Brentwood in aid of a Havering charity.  

The former Hammers footballer joined the annual event, hosted by estate agency Beresfords and Sanders Solicitors, at Thorndon Park Golf Club in Ingrave on September 27.  

More than £8,000 was raised for Saint Francis Hospice, which provides help to people affected by life-limiting illnesses. 

As a long-time ambassador of the charity, Trevor chatted with players at the event and handed out prizes at the evening’s presentations and auction.  

CEO of Beresfords, Paul Beresford, said: “For me personally, playing with Sir Trevor on the course was a real privilege; he is an absolute gentleman and amazingly active patron of the hospice.  

“We were very lucky to have his support.’’ 

Beresfords' business and marketing director, Nicki Treffers, added: “We were delighted that we exceeded our previous fundraising total.
