With the Monmouth Raft Race just 4 weeks away the Insight Law team have completed their raft build – and had great fun doing it.
The raft race team, called Insight Oar, are raising money for St David’s Hospice Care again this year and are determined to improve on last years’ placing in the overall results of this well established and well attended event.
Monmouth Raft Race, now in its 53rd year, takes place on 2nd September and the race is a fun afternoon on the river that starts at noon from Monmouth Rowing Club (just off the A40 at Monmouth) and is paddled over 6.5 miles down the beautiful River Wye to the finish at Tump Farm, Whitebrook. If rowers and supporters have the energy there is a Family Festival of entertainment with ample refreshment opportunities after the race has finished.
‘Of course we are hoping for some much needed rain as the team may end up carrying our raft down the river!’ said Insight Oar’s Captain and Master of Ceremonies Thomas Howells. Tom has worked for Insight Law as a Director in the Commercial Property Team since January 2017 and has taken responsibility for organising the Insight Law entry. ‘We may need to add handles to our raft just in case’ he added. ‘However we complete the raft race we are all delighted to be raising money for one of our chosen charities – St David’s Hospice Care’.
St David’s Hospice Care is a charity that provide, and continue to develop, a free and comprehensive palliative care service of excellence throughout Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Newport, Torfaen and within South and Mid Powys for people, their families and carers, facing a progressive life-limiting illness which is no longer curable. This service recognises the need of the whole person and works hard at fundraising activities to ensure that the very best in care can be provided.
