The total raised was £4,000 more than last year’s event.

Fundraising manager at the hospice in Butland Road, Paul Marlow, said: “To beat last year’s total and reach £20,000 was beyond our wildest dreams and I can’t thank everyone involved enough. It was a real team effort.”

Applications for next year’s Strictly Corby event are now available on the web at www.lakelandshospice.org.uk.
