A young cancer survivor teamed up with a footballing friend to help raise money for charity.

Cory Davison, who is still recovering from an agreesive brain tumour first diagnosed five years ago, held is fourth Cory Cup.

A total of 72 golfers took part in the event, with the 11-year-old having the dream job of being caddie for Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer.

Among the players were Cory’s dad Steven, with money raised at the event going to the chosen charity the Alan Shearer Foundation, which supports people with complex disabilities and acute sensory impairments.

The event, sponsored by Quantom Elite, took place at Bedlingtonshire Golf Club with a host of representatives from businesses and fundraising groups competing for a rang of big prizes, including a golfing holiday.

Cory has raised funds for good causes ever since he was diagnosed aged six, with previous Cory Cups including a Close House golf day in aid of the Sara’s Hope Foundation and two football tournaments at Blyth Town Football Club for charities including Princess Ellie’s Trust.
