Big-hearted Belton Woods Golf Club captain Ian Williams raised £5,798 for his charity of 2014, the British Heart Foundation.

Ian said: “I am delighted to have raised this amount of money - we all know someone that has been touched by heart disease. My father died from a heart attack 20 years ago and close family members have also had heart scares in recent years. It was for these reasons that I choose to support this very worthwhile and important charity.”

He presented the cheque to BHF’s fundraising manager for Lincolnshire, Helena Mair, who said: “We’d like to thank Ian and all of the members of the men’s and ladies golf section for all their help and support during Ian’s captaincy year.

“The club have organised such fantastic events over the year. This is a tremendous amount of fundraising and we are delighted to be presented with such a generous donation today.

“The BHF can only continue its life-saving and life-changing work thanks to money raised from events like this. We urgently need more individuals like Ian to support us. Keep working with us and together we will beat heart disease - for good.”
