Golf clubs were out in force to raise funds for good causes.

The Stamford Festival Charity Golf Tournament was held at Burghley Park on Friday last week, raising more than £3,000 for local charities.

The annual event, which is held as part of Stamford Festival, attracted 24 teams and organiser Duncan and Toplis has thanked the golf club for hosting the event and all those who helped make it a successful day.

Stamford Festival is in its 33rd year and tomorrow, families will line the streets of the town to see the parade of more than 20 floats.

The parade is organised by the Stamford Kiwanis and this year’s theme is cartoon characters.

On Sunday, the Family Fun Day returns to The Meadows and promises to be full of games and entertainment for the whole family.

The free event is organised by the Stamford and District Lions Club and starts at 10am.
