Various shops,organisations etc buy the basic pig and decorate it and nominate a charity.

The pigs are then put on a pig trail and people walk about to view all the pigs.

People paid very high prices and a lot of money was raised for charity despite the pouring rain.

Well done to all who took part and to Charles Hanson who made the event a lot of fun.

I think they were made of fibreglass.
