Racing snails contributed a massive £3,000 to the Chloe’s Dream appeal.
The snail race evening was held on Friday at Leverington Sports and Social Club and was the first fundraising event in the appeal.
The Chloe’s Dream appeal is fundraising to send Chloe Chaplin (5) and her family to Disneyworld in Florida. Chloe has leukaemia and still has two years of gruelling treatment ahead of her. She was well enough to attend the event and stayed the whole evening.
Alison Whittaker, who set up the appeal with Shona Sewell and Letti Wright, said it was a brilliant evening and people were really getting into the spirit of the event.
They were overwhelmed by the businesses who supported the event and had 44 sponsors for the eight races. Special mentions go to 2gether Insurance, which sponsored every race, and Salon Emneth and Secret Garden Touring Camp who won the auction race and put their £120 win back into the pot.
