Lots of GIGgles at Charity Race

There was lots of laughter in Newquay Harbour Sunday 20th June, as six gigs took part in the fun annual Children’s Hospice South West Gig Race.

Spectators cheered on teams from CHSW, the Cornish Guardian, Cornwall Rowing Association for the Blind, the Newquay Voice, and Pirate FM as they raced a straight mile back to Newquay Harbour.

Yet again the Pirate FM crew were involved in a mid ocean collision at the start of the race, this time with CHSW crew one. After recovering, both teams were locked in a battle to avoid last place with Pirate FM just redeeming themselves in fifth place and the CHSW crew finishing sixth out of six!!

Building work is underway at Little Harbour but around £1.5 million still needs to be raised for the Precious Lives Appeal to reach its £5 million target so the hospice can open by the end of next year.

To find out more about Children’s Hospice South West’s Precious Lives Appeal to build Little Harbour, and the many different ways in which you can help, visit www.chsw.org.uk or phone 01872 261166.
