University of Portsmouth staff are taking part in a sporting charity fundraiser next week.

The staff sports day is on Friday at Ravelin Park and spectators are welcome.

The event – now in its eighth year – raises funds for Brain Tumour Research, which has a Centre of Excellence at the university.

Events include a traditional three-legged-race, and a sack race as well as a 75-foot inflatable obstacle course.
