Carsington Water hosts bell boating races in aid of Air Ambulance and CARE

Good sports will be raising money for the Air Ambulance and charitable organisation CARE at races on Carsington Water.

Bell boating races on Friday, June 19, will pit teams of eight against each other.

Similar to Dragon boat racing, each person has to paddle as fast as they can over the course to ensure their team is the first over the line and the eventual winners!

Participating teams have paid £40 for the chance to show their prowess and raise money for two good causes.

A barbecue and soft drinks will be available with all profits from the event being split between the two charitable organisations.

The event starts at 6.30pm. For further details, contact 01629 540478 or email: enquiries@carsingtonwater.com
