Mark Shea, the hospice’s marketing co-ordinator, said: “We are thrilled to have been chosen to benefit from this fantastic event.

“Hilgay Raft Race is a hugely popular local event and we are very much looking forward to seeing the wonderful rafts and canoes race along the river to raise much needed funds for the hospice.”
