A 24-hour pool marathon is being held at Finedon Dolben Cricket Club until 7pm tonight (Saturday, April 6).

Organisers hope to raise at least £1,400 to buy computers for Finedon Infants and Junior schools.

The marathon event got underway last night at 7pm and more than 60 players have participated so far.

Andrew Hakes, secretary of the Finedon Buffs, said: “A lot of people have dropped by. It has been very well supported by everyone in the village.”
