THE second Radar Challenge netted around £8,000 for good causes.

Around 500 people took to the A1073 at Crowland this spring to run, walk or cycle along routes in a re-run of an event first held on the new bypass.

This year’s event took place on the old A1073.

Among those taking part were a 70-strong team from St Guthlac School in Crowland, who were raising money in memory of their headteacher, Jo Fletcher, who died from cancer in January.

Radar Challenge 2 organiser Steve Colby said £4,000 will go to participants’ good causes and South Holland Rotary and Spalding Lions will each receive £2,000. He thanked all who made the event a success.
