Last July, twenty of the top companies in Sussex competed for the winner’s trophy in their various home-made water craft.
Competitors were given 4 large barrels, rope, a bath, six long poles from which they had to build their raft. Teams had one hour in which to construct the raft and were not allowed to use any other materials except those provided.
Entrants were allowed to accessorise/brand their individual craft and Caremark made sure their vessel was easily identifiable by fixing plenty of branded balloons to both ends!
Spirits were running high amongst the competitors and ‘Team Caremark’ did not disappoint their supporters! They paddled hard through the day and were rewarded later in the afternoon when they splashed to victory taking the winner’s slot in the Demolition Derby.
Caremark are once again looking forward to taking part in the fun charity day. This unique event attracted plenty of spectators shore-side too, who enjoyed a relaxing day supporting their various teams out on the water.
Last year’s Great Sussex Bath Race saw £16,000 raised for Life Centre and Chestnut Tree Hospice and it is hoped that this year’s event will raise as much again for the two charities.
