GOLFERS raised hundreds of pounds for a centre that helps deaf children.

Members of the Golden Lion Golf Society, based in Bedhampton, will hand over their yearly fundraising total to Fiona Heath, from the Elizabeth Foundation, today.

The Elizabeth Foundation, based in Cosham, is a national charity that helps preschool deaf children and babies learn to listen and talk.

Darren Galbraith, captain of the golf society, has worked hard to organise multiple fundraising events throughout the year, such as a firework event on November 5 involving a DJ, buffet and raffle.

Darren as elected captain picked the society’s charity of the year.

He said: ‘I have suffered with hearing loss in the past so the charity is one that is close to my heart.’

The final fundraising total will be revealed at the presentation, which will take place at Rowlands Castle Golf Club.
