Pig Races To Raise Money For Cancer Treatment 2009: Weather Series

Pig races to raise money for cancer treatment

Weather A series of ‘pig races’ will be held in Douglas Town Hall this evening, to raise money for the Mayor’s Charity Appeal.
‘Pigs in the Parlour’ is open to everyone, and guests are invited to bet on the outcome of races between battery powered pigs. All the money raised will go to 21 year-old Naseem Pishvaie, who needs treatment for a brain tumour. For Dot Pitts it will be the last fundraising event in her term as mayor. She says increasing the profile of illnesses such as cancer is as important as collecting money for charities (play audio file):
