A team from Raworths, including many family and friends, took part in the latest Great Knaresborough Bed Race. The event brings together colleagues to design, create, compete and support.
Organised by volunteers from the Knaresborough Lions to raise funds to meet local charitable and community needs, the Great Knaresborough Bed Race returned on 11 June 2022 after a two year break due to Covid. The event is a fantastic pageant of decorated beds, passengers and runners, combined with a gruelling course of 2.4 miles through parkland, the beautiful town centre and finishes with a crossing of the River Nidd.
This year’s theme was The Environment: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle and Raworths’ decorated bed highlighted the problem of plastic waste in our oceans.
A huge thank you to everyone who took part and donated so generously.
