It is the third show held in Wrea Green in recent years - with participants asked to donate £10, with all proceeds going to the Bispham-based centre.

The event is also part of Trinity’s corporate challenge, with fund-raisers attempting to make as much money as possible from £50.

A spokesman for Trinity Hospice said: “Wareings Buildings is once again taking part in the Trinity Hospice Corporate Challenge. The company receive a £50 seed fund and the challenge is to multiply it as much as possible and hand it back to Trinity as a much larger donation.

“It’s the third time Wareings Buildings have run this as a charity challenge and last year raised nearly £5,000 for the hospice .
