A barrel rolling race was held at a Braintree restaurant to celebrate Burns Night.
Crowds gathered at Tutti Grille in Braintree Freeport to watch entrants roll their barrel along in a bid to win a year’s supply of pizza from the food outlet.
Liam Lambert, 22, from Witham, won the event with a time of just 22 seconds.
The event also raised funds for the Essex Air Ambulance.
Lorna Evans, restaurant manager, said: “It was a great way to celebrate Burns Night and much more engaging than simply having a wee dram of whisky.
“The event proved very popular with families and our youngest competitor was just four years old.”
