Keen Insurance sponsors Charity Raft Race.

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

Participants are invited to form a team, build their raft, and embark on a race upstream from Llandaff Rowing Club, covering a distance of over half a mile before making their way back downstream to the clubhouse. Team trophies for the first three rafts will be awarded plus a trophy for the best-designed raft.

In celebration of City Hospice’s 40th anniversary, the charity is offering a discounting entry fee of £40 for teams, significantly reduced from the standard £75 rate.

This year’s Charity Raft Race is proudly sponsored by one of Wales’ oldest independent insurance brokers and financial advisors, Keen Insurance.

The company was founded in 1978, in a bid to provide a customer focused financial service delivering tailored insurance and investment solutions. For 45 years, they have guided individuals, families, and businesses to a more secure future.

Managing Director, Gareth Keen said,

“Keen Insurance is delighted to sponsor City Hospice’s Charity Raft Race. I have supported the charity for many years now and with a better understanding of the incredibly valuable and selfless service they provide, I support as often and consistently as possible. It’s humbling to see the efforts from the entire team and the kindness and dignity provided”.

City Hospice’s Charity raise is set to be a day filled with fun and excitement all whilst raising vital funds for Cardiff’s only provider of home-based specialist palliative care for patients with life-limiting illnesses and support for their families.

Corporate Relationships Manager, Nicky Piper said,

“We are thrilled to have Keen Insurance support our Charity Raft Race. This is such a fun event and we look forward to seeing everyone come together while supporting the charity and helping us continue the work we do”.
