Whittlesey BCKA Kickboxing and Kung Fu Clubs raised hundreds of pounds from a memorable fundraising event recently.

The clubs raised £700 for the town's Scouts Jamboree fund through competing in an 'It's a Knockout' day, organised by the Whittlesey Sports Association, and was BCKA's most successful event yet.

Members fought against other teams from different Whittlesey-based sports organisations amid the rain in giant costumes whilst trying to battle through challenges, including a bouncy castle covered in liquid.

Andy Whitwell, of BCKA, said: "It was a pleasure to be able to raise this money for the scouts.

"They have been personally good to my wife and myself on a business level, enabling us to run the nursery from the scout headquarters, which will come to the end on 31st August 2019 when we move into our new premises.
