With the Monmouth Raft Race being cancelled due to lack of water in the Wye, the planned Draw for the Rotary Clubs of Monmouth, Abergavenny and Chepstow Community Draw was made at The Royal Oak, Hereford Rd. instead. (Pictured are the Presidents of Monmouth and Abergavenny, Debra Lake and Robert Parker making the draw on Sunday 4th September).
The three lucky winners this year were Helen (£250) from Chepstow; Kevin (£150) from Bulwark and Mel (£75) of Abergavenny.The charities they had supported were Mencap and two separate School PTAs.
This novel Draw is designed for smaller charities so that they receive all the proceeds of tickets they sell, while Rotary meets separately the costs of the licence, printing and prizes. Over 30 charities took part and will benefit directly from the £7k+ they have raised. Thank you everyone who participated to help make this event a success.
The event will be run again next year with the Draw tickets becoming available in May 2023 and the Draw being held at the Monmouth Raft Race in early September, subject to river levels being back to normal levels.
