A PROCESSION of creative genius (or possibly madness), the weekend saw the second edition of the Farndon Soapbox Derby.

Crowds gathered as more than 30 customised karts - and team members - raced down Farndon High Street throughout Sunday

As of Sunday afternoon, over £23,000 had been raised in support of the Hospice of the Good Shepherd, with organisers hoping to hit £30,000.

There to watch the fun and capture some priceless moments, were several members of the Leader Camera Club.

As this gallery shows, teams really went to town with their chosen themes, from the vehicles to costumes.

This really was an example of 'it's the taking part that counts' but crossing the finish line in front of cheering crowds, was an added bonus.
