Based on a traditional game of conkers, the 19th annual event was held at The Oasis Centre in Wisbech on Friday, October 4.

Spearheaded by the town's Lions, dozens came from all over the county to take part or even to just watch the competition which went off "with a bang".

Each year, proceeds from the event go to the organisation's chosen charity. This year, all the cash went to the 'Christmas Wish for Hope' appeal.

The appeal is to help six-year-old Hope Weston from Wisbech get a bionic arm after she was born with no hand or lower limb on her left arm.

A spokesman for Wisbech Lions said: "This annual event brings together Lions and invited guests to enjoy playing conkers, win a prize or two and enter the raffle.
