PRISON officers competed in a charity golf tournament in memory of a former colleague.

Officers from Durham Prison plus relatives and friends took part in the event in memory of Gary Smith, who died of cancer in 2000 aged 39.

The Gary Smith Friendship Trophy was first contested in 2001 and this year was held in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support at Wynyard Golf Club, near Sedgefield, County Durham, raising £3,378 for the cause.

The winner was Dave Redford and the trophy was presented by Mr Smith’s widow Angeline and daughter Ellie.

Michelle Muir, from Macmillan, said: “Sadly the number of people being diagnosed with cancer is increasing every year and that means Macmillan’s support for people living with cancer is in more demand than ever.

“We want to make sure no-one has to face cancer alone but we can’t do it without the amazing people who fundraise for us.”
