Cycling fans take up pork pie time trial challenge at Skipton's Broughton Hall



First published in News

PORK pie and sausage roll lovers were urged to make quick work of the favourite snacks - and boost the appeal to help little Connor Wrighton see.

Visitors to the Rapha Tempest Festival of Cycling at Skipton's Broughton Hall were asked to take a 'Time Trial Challenge' set by butchers Drake and Macefield to devour a pork pie and a sausage roll in the fastest possible time.

Entrants paid £5 to have a chance at winning a barbecue grill provided by Weber, with cash going to the appeal to pay for stem cell treatment which could give some sight to eight-month-old Connor, of Skipton, who doctors think was born blind.

Drake and Macefield butcher Steven Teal said it was a challenge lots of people had been happy to get their teeth into.

"It's proved really popular - and the money is going to a really good cause."
