The Guildford Lions Club Annual Charity Raft Race will take place on Saturday 1st July 2017. The Raft Race is a feature of Guildford's Summer Festival. The race provides an entertaining spectacle along its route on the River Wey from Millmead in Guildford centre to the Waterside Centre in Stoughton, about a mile down river. Spectators can follow the race along the towpath. There will be a BBQ and bar at the Waterside Centre.
The Raft Race is one of the Club's main fund raising events. It has been run every year for over 40 years. This years theme is “THE MOVIES” which provides a wide choice for rafters to decorate their rafts and themselves. There is a modest entry fee and sponsorship money raised by rafters for the Guildford Lions Charitable Trust will, as in previous years, be used to support many charitable and deserving causes in our local community.
Are you a paddle boarder? If we have sufficient interest we will run a separate class for paddle boarders.
We are very grateful once again for the very generous support of Enterprise Rent a Car and Wickes who are the major sponsors of this event.
