Red Arrows v Red Barrows

Hello all,

I had to Blog this. Last sunday at the Sudbury Dragon Boat Race there was a display team doing a spot for charity. Everyone must have heard of the Red Arrows Flying display team. Well, this is nearly the same with the difference that the Red Arrows use jet airplanes while the Red Barrows use, eh, ehhh... wheelbarrows. They do the display all through the UK for several different charities. The one on sunday was for breast cancer support I believe.

The Red Arrows do all sorts of dangerous stunt formations and so do the Red Barrows. They did all sorts of formations like Flying V's, Left Flank formation, right flank formation etc.

The crowd loved it. The MC hammed it up nicely explaining what they were doing, it was hilarious.

The boys in red must have been sweating their behinds off as it was a very warm day.

The biggest proof (if that was needed) that people loved it was that at the end when they went round with the wheelbarrows to collect donations for the charity the money came flying in from everywhere.

This was an excellent humorous way to collect money for charity, keep it up boys!
