On Sunday 5th August 2018 FAB Events are proud to sponsor and organise the FAB “BATTLE OF THE SEXES” CHARITY SPORTS DAY! A day filled with sports, fun, live entertainment and lots of fund raising for a charity close to all of us at FAB, East Lancashire Hospice who provide a special way of caring for people suffering from life limiting illnesses throughout Blackburn, Darwen, Accrington and Clitheroe.
The activities and event will run across 2 different venues (follow the links below for directions)

All participants will be charged a fee of £5pp to play in the sports listed (limited spaces are available). This payment will include your guaranteed entry to the evening party from 4pm
The day is open to the public to watch all activities and collection buckets will be on sites to encourage donations on entry into the 2 venues if you are able to do so.
