Northumberland Estates and Maggie's extend their heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated and supported this event.

Karen Verrill, centre head at Maggie’s Newcastle, said: “We’re over the moon to be Northumberland Estates’ charity this year. Families from across the whole region will use Maggie’s for cancer support.

"Our North East centre is in the grounds of Newcastle’s Freeman Hospital. You can simply walk-in for immediate help and advice or, speak with our team of cancer support specialists over the telephone. Almost everything is funded by our local community – thank you to everyone who made the golf day so successful!”
