A GROUP of golfers took to the greens in pink - and raised nearly £18,000 for charity.

The pink-themed golf day was organised by John Price, 57, in support of Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity, which saved his life ten years ago.

John was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 1998 and secondary cancers three years later.

But he underwent a clinical trial and is still here to tell the tale.

The event was held at the Hallamshire Golf Course, and each player was given a pink umbrella, polo shirt and cap before having their picture taken on the first tee.

A total of 53 teams of four took part and a raffle and auction were held in the evening.

The golfers raised a grand total of £17,825.

John, from Sandygate Road, Sheffield, said: “It is unbelievable that we were able to raise such a fantastic amount for Weston Park which I have supported since the clinical trial which saved my life.”
