A team of insurance brokers from BIB (Darlington) are hoping that they won't have to fall back on their own policy at a charity event.

A team from the firm, which is based in Northgate has entered the Darlington Operatic Society Knockout 2000 competition, being held on Sunday Hospice at Darlington Rugby Club in aid of St. Teresa's Hospice.

As well as taking part in the competition, the firm is providing insurance cover for the event.

Eighteen teams from local businesses and clubs will be doing battle in eight crazy challenges plus the Knockout final.

Last year, a total of £5,200 was raised for the hospice.
