More than 50 people took part in traditional sports day activities - including egg and spoon races, skittles and tug of war - at Delapre Abbey to raise funds for the Northampton Mencap Society. The day was followed by barbecue at the Boughton Centre, home to Northampton Mencap, and an evening disco.

Organiser Muriel Hough said: “Today went down like a storm - everyone enjoyed themselves.”

Mencap is a charity for people with learning difficulties, which helps people to help themselves so that they can lead  a fun and active life in their community. Northampton Mencap has more than 85 members and run evening clubs throughout the week. They are always looking for new members as well as volunteers for club and drivers.
