THE Melbourne Pram Push is back this month to raise money for two charities.

The annual event sees pairs of adults gather at Melbourne Assembly Rooms and push each other from pub to pub.

It costs £20 per couple to join the race which includes a free half pint at each pub.

All of the money raised will be split between the Melbourne Rugby Club and Melbourne Community Care.

The event was once a tradition but it died out in the late 1990s.

However it was revived last year by Sheila Hicklin to remember her friend, Joe Laban.

She said: "Joe was in the winning Pram Push team a few times, he really loved to take part in it every year."
