The Cambridge ROAR, an annual festival of charity events, is just over two months away!

Returning in June for another series of charity events, there will be “everything from comedy nights, corporate games and white collar boxing to swanky dinners and glitzy balls,” say organisers.

“In addition, the ROAR recently announced that two of the most well-known names in motorsports are set to join the Sporting Heroes dinner panel.”

All funds raised from the ROAR events and charity auctions go to its three chosen charities: East Anglian Air Ambulance, Arthur Rank Hospice Charity and Cambridge United Community Trust.

The following events will take place throughout the summer, from June 17 until September 30.

• Corporate Games (June 17) - teams of six people from a range of organisations and institutions pit their wits and strength against their opponents in a series of obstacles, trials and games

• Champagne Dinner (June 21) - VIP luxury with champagne on the red carpet, a three-course dinner in the Quy Mill Hotel’s historic Waterwheel room and a charity auction afterwards
