Martial arts students in Retford were on top form for Sport Relief as they raised more than £1,000 with a sponsored kick-a-thon

Students at the Lynx Black Belt Leadership Academy raised £1,116 with everyone jumping at the chance to take part.

Students were given the challenge to compete as many kicks to a target within a minute without stopping and they gave it their all.

The academy was filled with screams and cheers of encouragement by spectators, fellow students and parents, as the students battled it out in pairs.

With energetic kicks and moves this was by far the best fund-raising event to date, with little Grace Whitikar winning the best dynamic kicks award.

Rachel Blinston, academy co-owner commented: “I am overwhelmed by the generosity and dedication given by parents, students and supporters of Lynx.

“It was an absolutely brilliant night and the energy levels were off the roof.

“Master Andrew Blinston and I are extremely proud of all of the students and what they achieved.
