A BARMAID finished third in a charity beer race with a difference.

Nicky Hargreaves, who was 22 at the time, of George Street, Rishton, joined more than a dozen barmaids from clubs in the Club and Institute Union (C. I. U.), in a race over the final half-furlong at Doncaster Racecourse balancing a pint of Guinness on a tray.

It was the sixth running of the Guinness/C. I. U. Barmaids' Derby, sponsored by Guinness and organised by C. I. U., Britain's biggest clubs organisation with more than 3,000 social clubs.

Nicky was sponsored in the race by Rishton Working Men's Club where she has worked for more than three years.

She managed to raise 170, as well as winning a 50 prize.

She said: "It was a superb day and there was a great atmosphere. I still had half a pint left at the end of the race which was pretty good. Some of my friends came to watch and it was a good laugh."
