The Great Sussex Bath Race 2017 - calling for teams and volunteers!

On Sunday 18th June 2017, 18 corporate teams from the Sussex business community will compete in a fun raft-racing tournament in order to raise vital funds for two chosen charities, Lifecentre and Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice. YOU can get involved in this fun-packed day by entering a team into the race or by volunteering to help on the day. Read on for more info…

Enter a team!

Mixed teams of six are invited to enter this adrenaline pumping, muscle straining and brain teasing paddling competition with three rounds of heavily fought duels on a beautiful private lake in Chichester.

Included in your day:

  • All raft-building materials (you are welcome to accessorise)
  • Racing on the lake with your team paddling as fast as they can
  • A delicious lunch for your team served by The Gourmet Chef
  • Live commentary and music from our compère Tom Foolery
  • Health and safety equipment (buoyancy aids/helmets) for your team
  • Snacks and refreshments throughout the day for teams
  • A sparkling wine award ceremony at the end of the day
  • 3 teams will be awarded our sought after bath tap trophies!

Team entry is £250 with a team fundraising target of £1000 via or via company donation.

Volunteer to help out at The Bath Race!

Lifecentre is currently recruiting volunteers for the 2017 Bath Race which is being held on Sunday 18th June. These volunteers will help to run the event and will be contributing to a great cause by giving their time to an event that raises money for two much-needed charities.

On Saturday 17th June we need 4 volunteers from 1pm to 5pm to help us set up for the race the following day. These volunteers need to be strong and physically fit as the work of setting up the course requires heavy lifting.

On Sunday 18th June we need volunteers as follows:

From 8am to 12.30pm we need 5 volunteers to set up, sell raffle tickets and manage Lifecentre’s information stand.

From 12 noon to 4pm we need 5 volunteers to continue with raffle sales and manning Lifecentre’s information stand.

From 3.30pm to 7pm we need 6 volunteers to help us clear up after the event. These volunteers need to be strong and physically fit as the work requires some heavy lifting.

To register interest in volunteering for this event, please email
