Weston Hospicecare held its inaugural It’s A Hospice Knockout at Clarence Park on Saturday, with the teams testing their physical prowess and mental ingenuity in a range of challenges.

After an action-packed day, the Grand Pier’s team proved strongest over the medley of inflatable obstacles.

Spectators also enjoyed a family fun day in the park, which featured games, stalls and attractions from the Funland At The Tropicana amusement park.

The total raised is yet to be calculated, but event organiser Kelsey Dehaney was ‘really pleased with how it went’.

She said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part, everyone who sponsored them, all those who came along on the day, and our volunteers and helpers who worked to make the day such a success.”
