The Three Horseshoes pub in Hernhill, near Faversham, raised £1,800 for charity at its annual Wheelie Bin Race.

Launched at the Shepherd Neame pub more than a decade ago, the event sees teams of four racing elaborately decorated bins through the village.
A total of nine teams took part in this year’s event on Saturday, July 12, with a group of regulars from the Three Horseshoes winning the prize for making it back to the pub in the fastest time.

The race was followed by an afternoon and evening of events at the Three Horseshoes, including live music from the Leigh Highwood Band, a barbecue, raffle and auction.

Licensee Buster McDonnell said: “We had an absolutely fantastic time and would like to thank all the teams who took part and everyone who came along to support the event. Our activities during the day and evening raised a total of £1,800, which will be going to the Pilgrims Hospices.”
