Sports day in Bury St Edmunds raises cash for St Nicholas Hospice
A charity sports day and boot camp in Bury St Edmunds which raised hundreds of pounds for St Nicholas Hospice Care has been hailed a success.
Sunday’s family event was organised by Lucy Cronin, of 365Motivate, and was hosted at Hardwick Primary School.
It featured a range of events and challenges from martial arts demonstrations to the hour-long fitness boot camp.
Ms Cronin said: “It went absolutely fantastically, we had a brilliant day which really helped.
“So many different people helped out and gave their time and donated prizes, so I couldn’t have done it without them.

Ms Cronin was taking part in the Jacobs Allen Accumulator Challenge, which sees dozens of businesses across the county try and raise money in aid of Bury charity St Nicholas Hospice Care.
