    Dani & Fame from the Mai Home Run are getting amongst this year's 40 Hour Famine and their goal is to throw 10,000 basketball free throws in 40 hours.


    They will be at Action Indoor Hornby between 12:00 am to 5:30 pm on Friday 8 June. There will be four Basketball hoops set up and Dani and Fame will need as much help as possible to score the free throws and add them to the overall throw count. We’ve also got some help from the Canterbury Rams!
