City Hospice’s Annual Charity Raft Race

City Hospice’s annual Charity Raft Race is making a splash once again on Sunday 09th June at Llandaff Rowing Club.

Get ready to form your team, build your own raft and race from Llandaff Rowing Club upstream for over half a mile, and then back down to the clubhouse for the finishing line. This day is set to be filled with fun and excitement all whilst raising vital funds to support patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

This year marks a significant milestone as we celebrate our 40th anniversary. To commemorate this special occasion, we are offering a discounted entry fee of £40 for teams (usually £75). Gather your friends, family, or colleagues and form a team of between four to ten and join in on the fun!

Team trophies for the first three rafts will be awarded plus a trophy for the best-designed raft!

Participating in the Charity Raft Race isn’t just about the thrill of the competition; it’s also about making a meaningful impact in our community. We kindly ask each team to raise a minimum of £400, which will directly support City Hospice in providing vital care to the people of Cardiff.

How to register:

If you would like to enter a team, please email our Corporate Relationships Manager, Nicky Piper on nicky.piper@cityhospice.org.uk

This race is marshalled by Cardiff Aid Voluntary Rescue Association. This river Taff course is mostly only about 3ft deep (one small area is about 7ft deep) however, all participants have to wear a life jacket.
