Will it float or will it sink?

As the weather warms up and summer arrives, it can mean only one thing!

The Shrewsbury River Festival’s raft race on the River Severn will take place this Sunday at 1.30 pm.

First Mate Andy Lamb has selected his ‘paddlers’, some offered their services voluntarily others were press ganged - an old British seafaring tradition!

The rules demand that the raft is not assembled until the morning of the race, suggesting a wet ride for all participants!

Over the past two years, Multisol UK and Brenntag supporters have raised over £8,000 for a number of charities including Claire House Children's and St Roccos Hospices along with contributing towards £12,000 raised for the Midlands and Wales Air Ambulance Service and Severn Hospice.

This year the Charity is the Babygrow Appeal at the Countess of Chester Hospital.

Your support on the day is most welcomed, either in person or by pledging a donation. A fundraising page has been set up, please share this with as many people as you can - https://www.justgiving.com/MultisolFundraisingTeam/.
