Whole raft of rea­sons for race on canal

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

It may look as if they are sim­ply mess­ing about in boats but par­tic­i­pants for the St Rum­wold’s Raft Race will be tak­ing things very se­ri­ously.

The Royal Mil­i­tary Canal in Bon­ning­ton will be the scene of the ac­tion from about 1pm on Fa­ther’s Day, Sun­day, June 19, when teams will dress up in funny cos­tumes and take to the wa­ter in home-made rafts to raise money for St Rum­wold’s church and the Fire­man’s Benev­o­lent So­ci­ety.

The bi­en­nial evening raised over £3,800 two years ago and or­gan­is­ers hope for more.

Pro­moter Sally Ne­wall said: “It is a great spec­ta­cle in aid of some im­por­tant lo­cal causes.”
