Hemel Hempstead Camelot players came together for a series of challenges to raise more than £1,000 for a brain injury charity.

The day was organised by former Camelot player Barry Thorne, 29, who was inspired to run the event after receiving support from Headway following a serious injury last year.

Barry fell more than 20 feet from a ladder last October and was badly injured - leaving him unable to speak for a period of time.

In a very difficult time for himself and his family, Barry says that Headway offered vital support and helped him to rebuild his life.

The charity is a UK-wide organisation that works to improve life after brain injury.

“They are a really good charity and offer a great deal of support,” said Barry. “I’m really looking forward to giving them the money that we have raised.”

As part of the fundraising day, Barry put Camelot players through their paces with competitions including a car pull, hang tough, and pitch-long sprints carrying kegs.

There was also a raffle, barbecue and an auction, with the total amount raised exceeding £1,300.
