THE Landkey Festival and gruelling Codden Hill Challenge have raised £1,900 for the Chemotherapy Appeal.

The first ever instalment of the 10 kilometre race saw 64 runners sign up for a tough course that included two ascents of the steep hill.

It was held alongside the Landkey Festival, which included a wide range of activities and a wonderful cake was made for the raffle by Maggs Kenny. The festival raised an additional £600 for Landkey groups.

Ronnie Richmond and Maddie Horton were the winners of the Men’s and ladies races on the day.
