The 2017 Deepings Raft Race are delighted to announce that over £8,000 was raised directly by the event for good causes this year. That does not include funds raised by charity stalls themselves and raft teams collecting sponsorship for their own charities.
The cheques (£3331.00 each) were presented to the 2 main charities -
In attendance were Representatives from the Raft Race Committee, our supported charities (Rosie from The Evergreen Care Trust, both Kate & Nick representing the Deepings Youth Group, Liam from Road to Remembrance and Dave from the Air Training Corps) and one of our many long term sponsors, Bill Shaw from The Boundary Fish & Chip shop.
Other smaller amounts were donated to various community groups, some of which provided assistance with such tasks as marshalling. These included: £500 to Roads of Remembrance (sporting Scotties Little Soldiers).
£500 to Parkinsons UK
£200 to the Peterborough 115 sqn Air Training Corps
£100 to Baston C of E School -
We were also able to hand over to our main charities two further cheques (£150 each) which were kindly given to us by Howdens of Bourne.
