Barnsley Hospice volunteers prepare for the fancy drag race Barnsley Hospice volunteers prepare for the fancy drag race


A CHARITY road race that encourage men to race around the streets of Barnsley dressed in drag has been cancelled due to lack of numbers.

Barnsley Hospice had arranged the men-only event as an alternative to the successful Midnight Walk, which is open to women.

It was scheduled to happen on October 7 but the Hospice revealed today that it has had to be cancelled because not enough people signed up.

Event organiser Helen MacIntosh said: "We tried to bring a ‘men only’ event, but sadly there hasn’t been the take-up which we anticipated for the Fancy Drag Race and therefore we have decided to cancel the event.

"We want to know what kind of events men would like to take part in and what new events for both sexes would be a good idea."

I think it's a good idea, Maybe advertise? Get people a little more involved.

No wonder had so little interest could have done it in summer, that cold wind up your dress chilling the two veg ain't that appealing.
