Organisers of the annual T3 Farm Challenge in Batley, have revealed that a “whopping” £4,313.29 was raised for patient care at Kirkwood Hospice.

The adrenaline-packed 5km challenge at Still House Farm saw contestants climb giant mounds of tyres, swim through freezing cold water and shoot head-first down water slides and other daunting obstacles.

It attracted well over 200 participants and stacked up a whopping £4,313.29 for the Dalton-based Hospice and since its inception just over four years ago, the thrill-seeking event has raised a grand total of £27,793.73 towards patient care.

The event organisers said: “The challenge creates an exciting event for the local community, bringing people together to raise money for a worthy cause, like Kirkwood Hospice.

“We are absolutely delighted to have raised £4,313.29 for Kirkwood Hospice and a further £1,286.40 for the Yorkshire Down Syndrome Group.”

They reduced ticket ptrices in a bid to drum up new faces after switching the event to a new venue.
