Village 'brings home the bacon' with charity event
A seaside village “brought home the bacon” to raise money for a non-profit organisation which keeps a vital village structure intact.
The Cove Cafe Bar hosted a Charity Pig Racing event, raising £2,553.65 for the Save the Breakwater project in Hope Cove.
The Charity Pig Racing is a family friendly event where people involved bet on eight battery-operated pics and the winner is the first past the post.
Built in the 1920s and providing a harbour enjoyed by thousands each year, the Hope Cove Breakwater is under a “serious threat” after taking a relentless battering over recent years.
The Friends of Hope Cove Breakwater was formed to raise money to go towards extensive repairs and maintenance.
The Cove owner Shelley Robinson-Major said a special mention should be made to fellow resident and photographer Becci Hey, whose calendar raised a further £2,100 towards the appeal.
“It’s great to see the community come in out, have some fun and support a really worthwhile cause that is so important to this village.
“Thanks to everyone involved,” she said.
