A charity golf day raised thousands of pounds for new swings at a Woodford Green special needs school on Sunday.
More than 40 golfers attended the inaugural event in aid of Hatton School at Woolston Manor Golf and Country Club in Chigwell.
The event has raised £2,350 for the primary school, in Roding Lane South, so far but organisers are hoping that figure will rise.
Organiser Gulnawaz Yasin said: “The facilities the school has are very good but it is never enough to meet the needs of the children.
“The swings will mean a great deal for the children having these outdoor facilities; it will help the staff put together activities which will help the children improve their communication skills.”

Mr Yasin said he hopes that the event can raise money for the primary school every year.
