Rock star Tom Meighan has thanked members of a golf club who raised £1,800 for Support our Forces.
The Kasabian frontman is a patron of the Leicestershire charity, along with fellow Countesthorpe musician Jersey Budd.
The charity was formed seven years ago in Blaby by Wayne North and his family.
As well as sending packages to soldiers serving overseas, it supports injured service personnel back home and gives money to the Royal British Legion.
Wayne said: "Kilworth Springs Golf Club chose us as its charity for this year and has gone a brilliant job raising money over the year, with raffles, cake sales, fining players for wearing two many items of clothing on the golf course and other things.
"Tom and Jersey came along to the club on Friday to receive the cheque, which is going to make a big difference.
"I've known Jersey and Tom for quite a long time.
"Only last month Jersey ran the Leicester Half-marathon for us and raised £400. Having Tom supporting us is phenomenal because Kasabian are a worldwide band now.
"He knows the good work soldiers do and he's right behind us."
