The charity has recently fallen on hard times and from shaving their heads to an 80s nights, the community has been fundraising.

Grove & Dean marketing director, Matthew Collett, said: "This is a great opportunity for local businesses, teams and individuals to come together to meet, compete, support a great local charity and have fun."

A £10 donation is collected per person and participants can enter as teams or individuals. Entries close at 6pm on Tuesday, June 11.
