A hospice in Corby is urging people to join a major fundraising drive taking place next week.

Lakelands Hospice in Butland Road, Corby, is holding Lakelands Week from Monday.

Staff are hoping local people will raise record amounts and a team from the hospice will kick off the efforts by climbing the three highest mountains in the UK in 24 hours.

Fundraising packs are available on the hospice website and there are several more chances to help raise cash.

Corby Asda is holding a fun fete day on Saturday, September 20, from 11am to 6pm with face-painting, dancing, a tombola and cakes. There is a car wash on Saturday, September 27, including home-made cakes and coffee at Lakelands from 10am to 2pm.
