University of East Anglia students race wheelbarrows through Norwich
Traffic of a different kind weaved its way through the streets of Norwich as thousands of students set off in their specially designed wheelbarrows to raise money for a good cause.
Now in its sixth year, the Pimp My Barrow event saw some 1,500 students taking part in the fancy dress event which saw them dress up in an array of fancy dress costumes, including soldiers, sailors, Scooby Doo characters, pirates and cowboys.
Their 'pimped up' wheelbarrows were then raced through streets, including Jessop Road, Avenue Road, Park Lane and Mill Hill Road before returning back to the University of East Anglia.
The event was organised by the Raising and Giving Society and supported and managed by the Union of UEA Students. Funds raised from the event will go to Big C, Norfolk and Waveney's cancer charity. It is not yet known how much money was raised from Saturday's event.
Pimp My Barrow was a concept first devised by two former UEA students, Paul Wheeler and Tom Tapper.
