MORE than £6,000 was raised for the Anthony Nolan Trust when the It's A Knockout Challenge returned to Therfield Heath on Sunday.

Organiser Christine Brown said: "It was a fantastic success, and we feel next year will be even bigger and better.
"It was a great family fun day. There was something for everyone - from children's rides to a beer festival.
