Ackworth Pram Race 2019

Organisers said the weekend’s event was the “best ever” and well-earned after 2018 when much of the day was called off due to the weather. Around 2,000 people turned out and the cash raised for charity has already broken last year’s tally of £6,500. The money will go towards the Prince of Wales Hospice and motor neurone disease research.

Over 2,000 people turned out for the popular event.
There was lots of fun to be had on the day.
