Porthleven’s 2013 Pram Race

Porthleven’s annual Pram Race took place on Sunday in very windy conditions. The ‘race’ started at The Ship Inn and ended at the Atlantic Inn. Even though the race is the fun part, the aim of the race is to raise funding for charity. This years charity is the Made for Life Foundation. As part of the event, an auction was held at The Ship Inn on the Friday

In total, it is looking like the amount raised for the charity is heading towards the £2000 mark, with £1700 of that being raised at the auction. The main organiser of the event was local artist and business owner, Suzie Williams; and she deserves huge credit for organising the events. Thanks should go to the race participants and the marshalls.

And now for the pictures:
