Former Romford Golf Club captain Michael Miles handed over cheques to his chosen charities at the Heath Drive club on Sunday.

An incredible sum of £14,500 was raised by members for Cancer Research UK and the London Air Ambulance, who shared the amount evenly.

Laura Stock and Sue Ellis received the cheques on behalf of the charities and a statement from London Air Ambulance said: “This money raised could potentially save three people’s lives.”

A Romford spokesperson said: “This is just magnificent and made us at RGC feel extremely proud to have been some help.”

Each year Romford’s newly appointed captain selects a charity of their choice and John Fuller will be raising money for DT38 Foundation.

Dylan Tombides was a young West Ham player who passed away from testicular cancer and Romford held a golf day for members made a good start to fundraising with an impressive £700.
