Cornwall Life - - THIS MONTH -

Foam, fun and fool­ing around has helped to raise more than £3,000 for a char­ity ded­i­cated to help­ing the armed forces per­son­nel find new lives through sail­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

The Fal­mouth-based char­ity Turn to Star­board sup­ports Armed Forces per­son­nel af­fected by mil­i­tary op­er­a­tions and their fam­i­lies.

More than 160 peo­ple – many in fancy dress – took part in the event at the end of July with teams from Rick Stein, Fran­cis Clarke and Nalders So­lic­i­tors join­ing in the fun at Mal­pas Park in Truro, com­pet­ing for top scores in a se­ries of chal­lenges across a gi­ant in­flat­able ob­sta­cle course.

Com­peti­tors slid across the foam-filled course to throw hoops over an in­flat­able pole, bounce on mini space hop­pers, leap down a wa­ter slide and com­pete in a pony-style sack race. The fam­ily-friendly event, spon­sored by pump man­u­fac­turer Wat­son Mar­low, was won by Hawkins Mo­tors with Lanes of Corn­wall and Lee Andrew De­sign as run­ners-up.
