A BALLOON and wheelbarrow race is to take place in Boston in aid of charity.

The Rotary Club of Boston has organised the event which will take place in Central Park. on Sunday, September 25, from noon.

The Wheelbarrow Race is for teams of four in fancy dress. There will be a competition for childrens teams (aged eight-15) and adults (over 16s) and will be run round an obstacle course in the park.

Teams will raise money through selling balloon tickets, priced at £1.50 each.

Each balloon will be released with a number – which also goes into a raffle – and the ballon which travels the furthest wins £50.

The event will also feature stalls, childrens rides, competitions, games, and a hog roast.
