Pickle Wars to help young people

Pickle Wars to help young people

One of the Isle of Wight's most popular charity events will once again be returning to The Woodvale this March for its 13th glorious year.

The Pickle Wars, which is as odd as it sounds, pits various islanders against each other in an attempt to create the best pickled onion, in a day that is not only great fun but vital for the Children's Liver Disease Foundation.

Last year saw more than £40,000 raised for the charity, with many spectators flocking to the venue in order to try onions carefully picked by 50 entrants.

And this year is set to be even more successful, with the winning accolade being half a lager and the honour of having your name added to the Pickle Wars shield. Tensions are sure to be high and rivalries will be keenly fought out.

If you're interested in attending the day of fun and if your loved ones don't mind a slightly vinegary tang to your breath, be sure to book your ferry across to the island in good time before January 26th, when the contest kicks off.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801686292-ADNFCR
