The club from West Tanfield raised the cash from the British Autograss Series Round held in September this year.

Club Chairman Phil Sherwood said: “We chose Macmillan as several friends and members of the club have had support from Macmillan in the past few years, and couldn’t think of a better charity to support.”

The money will be used to help fund Macmillan’s vital cancer services including specialist nurses working throughout the NHS, a nurse-run support line and grants for cancer patients with money problems.

Macmillan’s fundraising manager for North Yorkshire, Michaela Ryder said: “We are very grateful for this donation. No one should have to face cancer alone and with support like this, they won’t have to.

“This donation will go a long way to helping us be there for people with cancer and their families.”
