A Boston business raised more than £13,000 for disadvantaged young people through holding a supplier conference and golf day.

Fresh chilled food producer Freshtime held the event across two days at Boston West Golf Course earlier this month.

The first day saw staff and suppliers of the Marsh Lane firm discuss current and future projects, before several of them gathered 24 hours later for its third annual golf day.

From a total of 24 teams, Ingredient Solutions were crowned champions.

The event raised more than £13,000 for the Freshtime Futures Trust, which helps disadvantaged young people achieve their ambitions.

Freshtime managing director Mark Newton said: “Our charity golf day is a popular event in our diary and most of the teams who took part this year have already signed up for 2017.

“I am extremely proud of the team that worked tirelessly to make the event a success.

“I would also like to thank everyone who supported us across both days.”
