STARS from the worlds of bikes and football and a number of other sports have taken part in the annual charity golf day as part of the International North West200.

Chief among them was four-time world superbike champion Jonathan Rea, a man who enjoys long links to the north coast.

Former NI soccer international John O'Neill was also in fine form, claiming the prize for longest drive by a celebrity.

A large number of teams competed in the event - with the main team prize going to a group of locals including Coleraine-based accountant Roger Dallas, Coleraine estate agent Dan Henry and Coleraine insurance agent Gary McClarty.

However, the main winner on the day was the nominated charity.
