BICESTER’S Captain’s Charity Day went with a swing to raise more than £11,500.

The four-ball event attracted 40 teams, which was won on countback by Pete Shepherd, Vicky Shepherd, Karen Shepherd and Priyan Shah.

Each hole was sponsored by local companies and the coffers were swelled by an auction, run by TV presenter Charlie Ross.

All three captains, Carly Bosher, Michael Jakeman and Robert Ansell, are supporting the Oxford Kidney Unit Trust.

Bosher, whose family have benefitted from the charity’s work, said: “I am absolutely blown away with the amount of support we received and everyone had a great day.

“Thank you to all that came and supported the day.”
