An annual golf tournament held in memory of a teenager who died 11 years ago has now raised more than £40,000 for charity.

Anoush Mahmoudzadeh, from Edingale in Staffordshire, was killed in a car accident on New Year's Day in 2007 aged just 18.

Ninety-eight players took part in the competition at Branston Golf and Country Club on Friday, August 4, and now it has been announced hoW much the event raised.

The eventual winner on the day, Steve Small, who is the operations manager of the pubs The Trooper at Wall and The Winehouse, in Lichfield, and was also a friend of Anoush won the cup.

In the four-player team event, a quartet consisting of Sam Harris, James Carter, Adam Tomlinson and Jamie Foster won.

All members of the winning team, as well as Steve Small who won the individual event, were handed their prizes at a dinner after the competition, which was attended by more than 180 people.

In all, this year's cup raised an incredible £9,124 which took the total amount raised to more than £40,000. The money will be split between the Teenage Cancer Trust and UK Youth.

Kamran Mahmoudzadeh, Anoush's father, said he was proud of his son and the competition was the perfect way to remember him.

Mr Mahmoudzadeh said: "The Anoush Cup is a wonderful event that has gone from strength to strength over the past 11 years. I am truly touched by the support of our families and friends and particularly with the generous support of our corporate sponsors.

"I am grateful the Anoush Cup has helped to make a small difference to others by raising money for worthy charities like Teenage Cancer Trust and UK Youth.

"We have plans to formalise the Anoush Memorial Foundation into a registered charity, so that we can have more fund-raising events throughout the year. I am very proud of my son and I hope that we can do him proud."
