24 July 2016 – we promised you a fantastic day out! All of you rafters were amazing in turning out for the race which recorded some very quick times and although a couple of “I’m never doing that again” phrases were heard they were vastly outnumbered by those who said “great fun” and “really enjoyed that”. We hope you can now concentrate on raising loads of sponsorship for Heart of England Mencap which would add the icing to the raft race cake. Thank you all so very much and we’ll hope to see you again next year.
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.
