A county power station joined forces with The Royal British Legion’s Northumbria branch to host a charity golf tournament.

The event at Newbiggin Golf Club saw 42 teams competing to raise £3,200 for The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Lynemouth Power Limited sponsored the event and donated £1,600 to the charity in addition to providing trophies and raffle prizes including a mini-break hotel voucher and golfing equipment.

Alan Millar, project manager at Lynemouth Power Limited, whose son Robert is a serving corporal in the Royal Scottish Dragoon Guards, presented the power station’s donation to Keith Laws, the Legion’s Northumbria county chairman, and recruiting officer Paul McClintock.

Mr Laws said: “We are delighted that Lynemouth Power Limited agreed to sponsor the Poppy Appeal Golf Tournament this year, with their help and the other sponsors we more than doubled last year’s total.”
