Raft race cancelled
This year’s Beverley Raft Race, which, as previously announced by Beverley FM, was due to take place on Saturday July 20th, has had to be cancelled owing to a lack of entries, it was revealed this week.
One of the organisers, Jane Tatton, told us: “This is due to lack of raft entries and with some people withdrawing from the event and so with such low numbers the event has become a non-viable project. Sadly, without rafts, we cannot hold a raft race!”
She continued: “There was no one more surprised than us at the low response this year as usually we are inundated with requests and applications but sadly this year it was not to be.”
Hopefully the event, which has attracted great support from contestants and spectators in previous years, raising money for medical services, will return in 2020.
