Pimp My Barrow has had another successful year with the event raising a total of £8,783.43 for charity.

Over 1,500 students took part in the race to raise money for the cancer charity The Big C, which works to ensure Norfolk residents have access to the best possible care.

Originally devised and run on a voluntary basis by former UEA students Paul Wheeler and Tom Tapper in 2007, this year was the first time the event was coordinated by the UEA Raising and Giving (RAG) society in conjunction with the Union of UEA students.

Popularity of the event has continued to grow over the past six years, in which UEA students have raised over £25,000 for the charity.
