Deepings Raft Race made £8,262 for good causes

This year’s Deepings Raft Race raised more than £8,000, donated to local good causes.

The main recipients were The Evergreen Care Trust and the Deepings Youth Group, who each received £3,331, plus £150 from Howdens of Bourne.

Smaller amounts were given to various community groups, some of which provided assistance on race day.

These included: £500 to Roads of Remembrance; £500 to Parkinsons UK and £200 to the Peterborough 115 Sqn Air Training Corps.

A presentation was held at Baston Church of England Primary School to celebrate their £100 for winning the banner competition.

Next year’s race will be on Sunday, August 5, with the theme Heroes and Villians.
