Former World Champion and Olympic silver medallist David Murdoch is launching a Youth Curling Foundation today in memory of his late father Matt.
The curler, from Lockerbie, says it's aimed at helping and encouraging more young people to get involved with the sport his family is so passionate about.
Emma Sayer has been Cumbria's top female jockey this season, winning three races.
She's racing at Ultimate Ladies' Night this evening, at Carlisle Racecourse, and our reporter Hannah McNulty went to meet her:
There's a lot of excitement building up to tonight, and I'm going to be in five races, so looking forward to that."
I think it's been a great initiative for Carlisle, to really get behind the ladies of this sport, because it is a male dominated industry, so it's quite nice that the girls have one night that is special to them.
And I think everybody appreciates it, and the ladies of Carlisle have got behind it, and I'm sure everyone will have a great time."
The first of seven races will begin at 5:45pm, and 76 horses are competing. The UK's top female jockey is amongst the competitors.Read the full story ›

Ben Stokes has been dismissed after just two balls by fast bowler Mitchell Johnson.
Stokes fell for a duck in the midst of a remarkable performance for Johnson, who now becomes the fifth Australian to take 300 wickets in test cricket.
The New Zealand born Stokes first moved to Cockermouth when his father, Gerard Stokes, moved to the area to become coach at Working Town RLFC.
The Rugby World Cup trophy has visited Cumbria as part of its 100 day tour of the British Isles. It was taken up Scafell Pike and then went along to the Workington rugby club ground where people queued to have their photos taken with it. Watch Hannah McNulty's report below.
