Funfest raises £8,000

Twelve teams took part in the 3rd Annual Funfest organised by Rushden & Higham Rotary club, Rushden Round Table and Cynthia Spencer Hospice. The event at Rushden & Higham Rugby Club’s ground, was a roaring success again as teams competed for the winner’s trophy, which was presented by Earl Spencer. The drizzly start to the day did not perturb the teams that took part in an assortment of games which entailed the participants getting very wet in any case. The winners were Wykes Warriors. Among others taking part were teams from Travis Perkins, The Rolton Group, Grenson Shoes and Durasteel.

The event, which raises money for the hospice and other local charities, made £8,000.
