SUPERSTARS enjoyed a sporting challenge in the name of charity.

Higher Kinnerton fundraiser Ken Doerr helped co-ordinate the event with members of his local veterans football team.

It saw a range of sports played out across Deeside and Chester while raising money for Claire House Children’s Hospice.

Ken detailed what took place on the day. He said: “We started with nine holes of golf at Westminster Park Municipal Golf Course, then a fastest lap contest at the Circuit go-karting track in Sandycroft.

“We then did clay pigeon shooting and target practice at Deeside Shooting Club, 10-pin bowling at the Tenpin club on the Greyhound Retail Park, cricket at Westminster Park, then a knockout table tennis and a penalty shoot-out at my house.

“After that there was a karaoke competition and if anyone didn’t enter that, they would lose all the points they’d earned during the day, so they had to pick a song!

“What was amazing was that at the end of all those challenges, with all the opportunities for scoring points, we had a tie for the win out of the 24 entrants who took part.

“The joint winners were Andy Jones and Rob Simpson, while we have so far raised £620 for Claire House. We are hoping to raise even more than that though.

“It really went very well despite the threatening weather and our thanks go to all the places we visited for giving us discounts to help our fundraising.

“We also had about 100 people enjoy a barbecue, where everyone was contributing to charity by buying burgers and drinks.”

This was the 11th superstars fundraiser the veterans team has held, its first since 2005.
