A CHARITY golf event in memory of a Flintshire boy was a big success, his parents have said.

Daniel Inskip, aged 12, died after being knocked off his bike as he cycled to his Brynford home in 1994.

His family has hosted the annual Daniel Inskip Memorial Golf Tournament for the last 12 years in order to help good causes in the local area such as the RNLI, Wales Air Ambulance, Alder Hey Hospital and others.

This year, the event took place at Holywell Golf Club in late July and raised £1,650 for Midwives of Holywell Community Hospital.

Daniel's dad Danny Inskip, who runs Danny’s Family Butchers in Holywell, organises the annual event with his wife Clair.

He said: “We do the golf tournament as it was something that Daniel loved and it seemed fitting to continue his legacy through golf.

“We are very pleased with how much we raised. We'd like to say a big thank you to everyone for their support, it is a very worthy charity.

“A big thank you must go to Holywell Golf Club for allowing us to host the event there. It was a great day. We’d also like to give a special thanks to Trevor Pye for keeping the scores on the day and making the announcements of results.

The funds raised were presented to midwives at Holywell Community Hospital earlier this week.
