Annual jaffa race finally takes place

A slightly sparser crowd than usual turned out for the Cadbury Jaffa Race today.

Three races were held on Dunedin's Baldwin St, after the event was postponed from its expected July date because of bad weather.

The races were run as fund raisers for Make-a-Wish, Surf Life Saving New Zealand and the Parents Centre, with up to 25,000 jaffas in each race.

It was confirmed earlier this year the Cadbury factory in Dunedin would close early next year, putting hundreds of people out of work.
