Cowes Pram push raised thousands for Macmillan
Revellers donned fancy dress and pushed 'pimped up' prams between pubs in Cowes on Sunday 24 August.
Dressed as Toy Story characters, tennis players, pirates and super-heroes, dozens of fundraisers took to the streets for the Island’s very own wacky races — otherwise known as the Cowes Pram Push.
Now in its 34th year, the annual race through the town lived up to its reputation as one of the Island’s most unusual fundraisers, with all donations going to Macmillan.
Six teams took part with top honours for the best dressed entry going to Peter Pan by the Painter’s Arms.
After the race, competitors regrouped at the Painter's Arms pub, where entertainment included live music and a raffle.
They raised £1,500 on the day with more coming in. The team at the Painter’s Arm’s, Cowes fundraise for Macmillan all year round and donate thousands to support people affected by cancer on the Island.
