Groups are being encouraged to enter teams in this year’s Deepings Raft Race. The event is on Sunday, August 7 in Market Deeping and this year’s theme is ‘Raft Race goes to the Movies.

Organisers say you don’t have to dress up or design your rafts on this theme, but it does add to the fun.

Main nominated charities this year are MECP2 Duplication (Brody &Friends) and The Deepings Community Centre. If you enter a team you can do it just for fun to help towards these great causes or you can collect for your own charity – the booking form gives details.

There are also still a few slots for people willing to help out as marshals (two-hour slots) and in appreciation they receive a voucher for free food/drink.

Apart from the rafts, there will be a huge array of varied stalls, classic cars and bikes, a funfair, music and dance demonstrations, two ‘bus bars’ and competitions including prizes for the best fancy dress and lots more.
