Memorial surf event raises funds for children
There was a bumper turnout for a surfing contest held to celebrate the life of a Cornish woman and raise money for disadvantaged children.
Jess Solley died in November 2009 after a battle with depression and the beach at her home town of Polzeath has now witnessed the Jess Memorial Surf Competition.
The fun event was staged to raise funds for children's charity Chicks, which Miss Solley's family have supported since her death.
Pamela Solley sent out a vote of thanks to the organisations which helped make the event happen and said her daughter would have loved it.

"A huge thank you to all the family and friends that helped make this event happen which Jess would have loved to have organised and competed in."
Fundraiser Mick Ryan said it had been a great day.
"This year Chicks is celebrating its 20th anniversary and has now given breaks to 10,000 underprivileged children, including many from Cornwall," he said.
"The £2,943.80 raised at the event, with more expected, will go towards funding much needed breaks for over a thousand children each year."
