HOW TO RAISE SPONSORSHIP in support of St David’s Hospice Care

The raft race is a sponsored event which is raising funds for St David’s Hospice Care and Monmouth Rotary Club. The total money raised will be split with 75% going to St David’s and 25% to other charitable causes supported by Monmouth Rotary Club.

It is a condition of entry that every raft entered, agrees to raise the minimum of £100 in sponsorship.

We will send sponsorship forms to every entrant.

If your friends or colleagues prefer to sponsor you ONLINE, you can set up your own Just Giving sponsorship web page. Please click on the following link.

How to create a Just Giving page

We ask that each crew member raises sponsorship from their friends and colleagues. We will send sponsorship forms to each entrant, which can be given to crew members.

By asking every crew member to raise sponsorship, we hope to increase the sponsorship per raft, to much more than the minimum. It is the 54th year that the Monmouth raft race event has been run and our target is to raise over £25,000 for charity. Please help us to achieve our target.

If you are a crew member, please create an ONLINE page, or ask your captain for a sponsorship form, or contact Raft Race Secretary, David Forbes by email at monmouthraftrace@gmail.com and ask him to send you a sponsorship form.

We can increase the amount that you and your crew receive in sponsorship by 25%, by claiming GIFT AID from HMRC, at no cost to yourself, or the people who sponsor you. To enable us to claim the GIFT AID, please enter details of your sponsors, in the way requested on the sponsorship forms.

When you have collected all the sponsorship, please send the completed sponsorship forms to Raft Race Secretary, David Forbes, Collingwood, Rockfield Road, Monmouth NP25 5SR, with your total sponsorship money.
