A charity golf tournament, ideally the first of many, has benefited the Child Cancer Foundation, Christchurch City Mission and Tri-Rugby.

Canterbury Rugby and the Canstaff recruitment agency combined to host the fundraiser recently at the Waimairi Beach Golf Club which raised $9183.

It is intended to be an annual event.

Prop Daniel Lienert-Brown, flanker Tom Christie and first five-eighth Fergus Burke were the Canterbury players involved in the outing.
