County unites for races

Over 40 teams will be competing in Shrewsbury Wacky Races on Sunday 26 May in support of Macmillan. The event is the first of its kind to be held in the town and will see the teams hurtle themselves down the hill in Shrewsbury’s Quarry, through chicanes and turns… hopefully avoiding the River Severn at the bottom.

The teams in the running represent businesses, charities, education, community groups, families and individuals from all over the county and include Beaver Bridges who are planning on building a solid bridge-like structure soapbox; a shark-based design by a nine-year-old,m which will be driven by his father; and creations by Rowton Brewery, the Little Rascals Foundation and Telford RAF Cadets among others.

The Harry Johnson Trust is one of the groups taking part. Sally Johnson of the Trust says, “We’re a very small, completely volunteer-run charity which offers help and support to local babies, children and teenagers with cancer. We hope our participation will raise awareness of our charity and spread the word about what we do.”
