Hundreds of families and friends were treated to a sunny afternoon playing school sports day races while raising funds for charity.

More than 500 people took part in the Spirit of Seething fun day, which featured classic races such as the egg and spoon race and the colourful drag race, where male competitors donned female garb and vice-versa.

The fun day, organised by the team behind the team behind Homage to Fromage and held at Victoria Recreation Ground on Saturday, May 12, raised £1,500 for charities.

Entertainment was provided throughout the day by The Green Rock River Band, Little Sister Blue and Charlie Law and a variety of stalls to keep people busy between races.

Organiser Robin Hutchinson said: "This was really great day for the Seething Community who came along and really joined in with the fun.

"A big thank you to them and to all the Seething Villagers who helped create such a special event. As well as all the fun we have managed to raise over £1500 for charity."
