Knights do 'battle' in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care




A legion of fund-raising knights stormed into ‘battle’ for a charity challenge.

The third Battle of the Knights challenge attracted 144 participants who tackled a 4km run and 25 obstacles over 1km at The Playground in Barrow.

The event on Sunday, April 14 raised £5,560 for St Nicholas Hospice Care.

Jenny Smith, hospice events manager, said: “The course always sees tremendous team spirit and the drive and the determination participants have to succeed to support St Nic’s always shines through.”

She thanked sponsors Hugh J Boswell and Atkins Thomson as well as Nick and Phil Smith, from The Playground, who donated the venue.
