Our cracking team

See who's bringing the hammer down on prostate cancer today

It's the opening day of our two week mission to crack 10,000 walnuts - one for every £5 donation or more given to the Sledgehammer Fund. If the snow doesn't scupper things, we'll be opening around 10.30am with a host of famous faces before our first volunteer nutcracker joins us at 3pm. Stay tuned on the Nutcracker Suite page and via twitter and get giving to make our nutcrackers sweat.
