Hardy fundraisers are being urged to put their agility to the test this summer in support of St Elizabeth Hospice.

Tickets have gone on sale for a brand new charity challenge that has been inspired by the hit TV show Ninja Warrior UK.

Extreme Ninja Assault will take place at Ipswich Rugby Club in Humber Doucy Lane on Saturday, June 16 and will see participants run, duck and dive their way through a large outdoor obstacle course.

Natalie Hill, events and challenges fundraiser at St Elizabeth Hospice, said: “We’re really excited about this new event and pleased that we’re able to bring something a bit different to local people.

“This event is fun for all the family and there will be adult and junior challenges so that everyone can take part on the day.

“While having a fantastic time, you’ll also know that all money raised from the event, through entry fees and sponsorship, will stay in the local area and be used by the hospice to help provide care and support for those living with a progressive or terminal illness.”
