Botesdale and Stanton Kuk Sool Won group are celebrating success after clinching more than 20 medals at a local tournament.

Stowmarket Leisure Centre hosted the SBN Kim Francis Memorial Tournament last month with 13 competitors representing the group, scoring nine gold, six silver and eight bronze medals between them.

Those who took part competed in disciplines like forms, techniques and sparring.

There was also a five-a-side football tournament, which was in memory of PSBN Joe Harvey.

The “Chunky Monkey” and “Korens Angels” teams came first and third respectively in the adult tournament, while in the junior contest “The Lollypops” came third.

The day raised £686.92, with the funds going towards Cancer Research UK.

Lessons are taught on Monday, 6.30-7.30pm at Stanton Village Hall and St Botolphs Primary School Botesdale on Thursdays.

The latter is split into two sessions, 6-7.15pm for children and 7.30-9pm for adults.
