Kesteven Children in Need (KCIN) raised more than £5,000 at its annual golf day, with 136 golfers taking part at Blankney Golf Course.

Chairman Steph Thorne said: “We’re incredibly grateful to our competitors and to all our sponsors for their generosity. This money will go directly to helping children and their families in our area.”

Kesteven Children in Need is a small, unaffiliated charity run by volunteers. It responds to requests from health care professionals asking for targeted and timely help for specific families. It provides practical help, from stair gates and washing machines, to school uniforms and emergency nursery place funding.
