St Agnes residents have a long-standing tradition with charitable events and Friday, October 12 will see the start of a weekend full of events in the village, raising money for The Mermaid Centre in Truro.
The St Agnes Boobaloo kicks off with Call My Bluff Winetasting at the Driftwood Spars on the Friday evening and finishes on the Sunday afternoon with a Retro Beach Day.
Louise Treseder, Landlady of the Driftwood Spars said "We really do have something for everyone at the Boobaloo.
"Starting with the wine tasting on the Friday, there will be an opportunity to get your car washed on Saturday morning in the pub car park.
Starting at 5:00pm on the Saturday, October 13, ladies will be taking part in a lunar walk from The Blue Bar in Porthtowan.
"The women are dusting off their snazziest bras for the walk which will meander along a ten mile route, ending up at The Driftwood Spars in St Agnes." Said Louise.
The fun then continues on Sunday morning at 11am with a decidedly retro feel.
Vintage vehicles will be out in force and there will be a Vintage Market and car boot fair with prizes for the best 1950's outfit.
"We are really pulling out all the stops on Sunday." Adds Louise.
"In keeping with the vintage vibe of the market and cars we will be holding a retro beach day at Trevaunance Cove.
Donkey rides, Punch and Judy, bra-sling shots and a human fruit machine are just some of the things to keep the family occupied during the afternoon.
"Bring the kids, down, it's going to be a little crazy and a load of fun.
"Anyone that wants to donate and support The Mermaid Centre can do so through our Just Giving page."
