Last year, more than £25,000 was raised for Cransley Hospice and Lakelands Hospice and this year’s event supported these local charities again this year.

As well as the racing, there was live music and craft and gift stalls.

This year’s event took place at the newly restored lake in Wicksteed Park, Kettering, on Sunday, August 31.

The winning team this year was Dig Deeper – Hewlett and Sons.

They were closely followed by GDS and Co, Tresham A1 Fitness and STX Sport Horses.
