IN celebration of the NHS’s 71st birthday, Barnsley Hospital will be holding a Custard Fest to raise funds for the Hospital Charity.

The director of ICT Tom Davidson and PA to the director of finance and director of communications Claire Finnerty have both volunteered to be dunked, dowsed and drenched in custard.

From 1pm today on the grassed area near Women’s Services, everyone is invited to go along and join in the custard fun.

There will be a custard tombola, custard sponge throwing, a custard cake sale and plenty more custard activities.
