The Mayor of Stockton-on-Tees, Councillor Eileen Johnson, hosted the fundraiser at Wynyard Golf Club on Friday, June 15, which saw 24 teams compete.

The Mayor's chosen charities are the Royal British Legion, Mary Thompson Fund and the Mayor's Benevolent Fund.

John Legg, of Nifco UK Limited, was part of the winning team alongside David Hutchinson, Chris Too Chung and Darren Bland from Nissan Sunderland. 

The Mayor said: "I am delighted that we managed to match the amount of money raised last year. With all the proceeds going towards worthwhile charities it has become a popular, annual event.

"It is a great way to give something back to these charities and raise awareness of the work they carry out. I would like to thank the organisers and the teams who took part for making it such an enjoyable day. Well done to the team at Nifco for putting on such a brilliant performance!"

John Legg said: "Winning the Mayor's Charity day along with our main North East customer Nissan UK is an excellent achievement and always a fun day out, plus the lads from Nissan played fantastic. Working with and supporting charities is always something Nifco UK supports in our region. Thank you for a fabulous day as always."
