The majority of the funds were raised at the Lady Captain's Charity Open held in June when 18 teams from Hindley Hall and other clubs competed.

Donations given at events including a Mindful Eating presentation about nutrition and weight loss and raffles held throughout the year contributed to the final total.

Lady Captain Valerie Gaskell said: "Every year the Lady Captain chooses a charity to support and this year I chose Wigan and Leigh Hospice and Marie Curie Cancer Care. The Hospice is a great local service and a lot of our members have an association with it.
"We raised £1,200 in total which we divided between the Hospice and Marie Curie."
