Golfers raised thousands of pounds for a special baby care unit in memory of Jack Tucker.

Rotary Nailsea and Backwell put on its popular charity golf day, which saw 34 teams take part.

The event, which was held at Mendip Springs Golf Club in Congresbury, raised £6,000 for charities.

A large proportion of the proceeds from the tournament go to the special baby care unit at Bristol Children's Hospital in memory of Jane Tucker's son Jack who was born prematurely in 2003, and died 24 days later.

The rotary club has been donating to this cause for the past eight years, which has enabled the unit to purchase 30 pieces of essential equipment.

Jane attended a rotary meeting to thank members for the £3,000 donation.

The rotary club will also donate £2,500 to Prostate Cancer UK, with £500 going to Rotary charities in North Somerset.
