A BIRTHDAY celebration with a difference takes place next month as a fun-loving Saddleworthian marks her 50th with a massive custard pie fight for charity.
Tracey Barlow has organised Operation Custard Pie for Sunday, June 9 and hopes to break the world record for the number of people involved, currently set at 684 in Texas.
The family event, sponsored by Brand Consortia, will raise money for Cancer Research UK and includes food, live bands, stalls, indoor and outdoor bars and children’s entertainment.
Tracey is also encouraging local schools and clubs to have stalls to raise funds for themselves and contribute a donation to the main fund.
Operation Custard Pie will be on Sunday, June 9 at Uppermill Sports Club. It starts at 2.30pm and all teams must be registered by 1.30pm. For more details, ring Tracey on 07795 333953, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit her Facebook page: Mission Custard Pie Fight.
