Charity bell boating race at Carsington Water on June 22, 2018.

Teams of eight to ten people are invited to take part in a charity bell boating race at Carsington Water.

The race on Friday, June 22, at 6.30pm, will raise money for the Air Ambulance and local charitable organisation CARE.

Bell boating races pit two teams of up to eight against each other with the winning team going on to the next round. 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!

Local teams wanting an active and fun evening out should register by completing an entry form and paying the £40 fee by contacting enquiries@carsingtonwater.com, calling 01629 540478 or downloading the form online at www.carsingtonwater.com.

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

Sarah Peel, managing director at Carsings Sports & Leisure, said: “Last year we had a number of local teams enter and had a fantastic evening. This year

we are looking for even more teams to enter and help raise money for the Air Ambulance and CARE.”
