A Kettering pub’s 24-hour pool marathon helped raise more than £1,000 for Cransley Hospice.
Rising Sun regulars showed no sign of breaking as they chalked up dozens upon dozens of frames in their charity effort.
Landlords Dave and Christina Cooper, Craig Boldy, Mick Goodrum, Daniel Towns, Fred Pearson, Wayne Morgan, Ash Pritchard, Ash Bedford and Harrison Moss all took part and a cheque for £1,050 was handed over to the hospice last week.
Dave and Christina said: “The customers in our pub are exceptional and the community spirit is second to none.
"We are looking forward to next year to see what we can achieve again.”
The pool tournament is the latest fundraising effort at the Silver Street pub, which held a bash to mark the anniversary of Brexit earlier this year.
They also have a Christmas raffle with prizes worth a total of about £3,500 and have raised more than £1,000 for the Skylark Ward at KGH.
More than 1,000 Easter eggs were collected for food banks and children at hospital or in foster homes and about £1,300 was raised for Troop Aid.
The pub will also be taking 150 selection boxes to patients and staff at KGH and their skittles team raised £400 for dementia causes at the hospital.
Dave and Christina said they wanted to thank everyone who has taken part in their fundraisers.
They added: “This pub is extraordinary with its community achievements. We are so proud to be running this pub.”
