An Euxton mum was remembered in style at a charity golf day and ball.
The fourth annual event was held on Friday at Shaw Hill Hotel, in Whittle-le-Woods, in memory of hairdresser Janine Thompson, who was 41 when she died of breast cancer in December 2010.
A total of 90 golfers took to the fairway to compete for the Janine Thompson Trophy, which was won by Gary Amos.
It was followed by a glittering ball for 270 people, complete with live music, a DJ, auction and raffle.
Janine’s brother Andrew Walker said: “We raised £11,000 from the day and evening events, which brings our total to £61,000, which is phenomenal.”
Money from the Janine Thomspon Fund is given to charity Boot Out Breast Cancer, which provides equipment for breast cancer units in the North West.

A specialist breast biopsy needle worth £30,000 was donated to Chorley And South Ribble Hospital this summer, along with a plaque in memory of Janine.
Fund-raising continues for the Janine Thompson Fund and the next golf day and ball has been scheduled for Friday, September 30 next year.
