Rick Draper, Craig Walker Ebbatson, Sean Lumby, Matty Glew, Chris Clark and Si Latham travelled 35 miles on a raft from from Meadowhall to Ealand to raise money for Lindsey Lodge Hospice.

The event saw them hand over £1,000 to Vivian Vincent from Lindsey Lodge Hospice recently, and in addition to this there was £245 on the Virgin Giving page they set up, and with gift aid it makes the total 1,600.

Rick this week thanked Des Comerford of Fallen Hero in Scunthorpe for supplying them with a T-shirt and a hoodie each and a donation; Amber Lloyd at British Waterways for help with all the arranging and British Waterways for help with the locks; Dave Maxfield and Richard Lindley at Hexthorpe Rowing Club for allowing the team to stay at the rowing club; and a massive thank you from the team for everyone who donated.
