MORE than £16,000 was raised for two charities by a golf day that was held in memory of a 50-year-old mum-of-one.

The Berkhamsted Golf Club event on Wednesday, June 13, was organised Professional Insurance Advisers.

Alan Robson, 55, of Two Dells Lane, Ashley Green, took over management of the company from his wife Sue after she died from brain cancer last year.

Among the players last week were Stuart and James Lyle, sons of Scottish pro-golfer Sandy Lyle MBE, and ex-Arsenal player Nigel Winterburn.

Cash raised from a raffle and auction after the golf day will be split between The Hospice of St Francis in Northchurch and the Seve Ballesteros Foundation for brain cancer research.

Hospice director Ros Taylor said: “Sue was a remarkable lady who I knew well as a friend – she never once gave up in the face of a difficult illness.

“She carried on swimming and golfing and enjoying life for as long as she possibly could, a great example for all of us.”
