The Lions are very pleased to invite you to join our 2016 raft race to be held on Sunday, 24 July and is the 40th ANNIVERSARY of this event which has raised around £750,000 during this period.
Paddle a home made raft down 7.1/2 miles of the River Avon for charity? Me? Yes, you!
Last year over 300 people did just this, they had a brilliant day out and helped us raise £11,000 for an important charity project. So, are YOU up for the 2016 challenge on 24 July?
This year our main beneficiary is Heart of England Mencap based in Clifford Chambers, near Stratford, and with your generous help we are aiming to raise over £10,000 to help to fund a fully accessible biking facility for people with both learning and physical disabilities.
Heart of England Mencap provides skilled support workers to enable all of its customers to live as independently as possible, either in their own home or in the charity’s properties. It also supports families and carers by offering short breaks and respite care. To enable its customers to experience a meaningful day it offers a range of co-ordinated day activity programmes across five locations. Heart of England Mencap enables all the people it supports to live the life they choose, focussing on their abilities rather than their disabilities.
