The Story

UPDATE: WE DID IT!!!! AND WE WON BEST DRESSED! We had such a wonderful day throughout and we're so grateful to everyone who supported us, whether it was through sponsorship, providing materials, transport or just coming out to point and laugh at us: Thank you all so much! === We are Rachel, Lilli, Tyrone and Matt and together we are the crew of BYOB (Bring your own boats). We're not sure if it's the strangeness of the last two years, or perhaps an early (for some of us) mid-life crisis - but for some inexplicable reason we have decided it would be sensible to enter the Needham Market Raft Race 2022. The theme of this year's race is "Let's Celebrate" so, to celebrate, we will be designing and lovingly hand crafting our very own raft. Then, on Sunday 5th June 2022, we will be taking that raft, throwing it into Needham Lake and participating in two races while desperately hoping we all remember how to swim. Although we do enjoy making complete tits out ourselves in front of large crowds, we are also taking this opportunity to raise much needed funds for the Stowmarket and Area Foodbank who deliver food parcels to individuals and families in crisis. With the relentless rises to the cost of living this is a local service that is needed more and more every day. Everyone deserves to eat so if you can spare anything to help, please click that Donate button and give what you can. And don’t forget to come along on the day to laugh at us in person. We'll be there from 12pm and the races start at 2pm. ===== We would like to say a big THANK YOU to Travis Perkins of Stowmarket who have generously contributed materials towards our raft. Absolute legends. We look forward to beating their own raft team on the day ;)
