Sedan sprinters wanted

HERE'S news for those energetic souls among us who fancy themselves as rickshaw pullers.

This year's sedan chair race - sometimes referred to as the Matilda Open - takes place on October 9.

But anyone wanting to participate in this worthy event should hot-foot it to the physiotherapy department of the Matilda Hospital at 6 pm today.

A word of caution, though. The organisers tell us the emphasis this year is on ''youth''.

We can't be sure whether this relates to the overall theme or the participation.

All the money raised goes to charity, so it's a worthy cause.
