48 teams of four compete to cross the river Severn ‘and back’ four times in the shortest time. Many wore fancy dress (with a prize for the best!). This year’s event took place on Friday, 11th September 2015 at Pengwern Boat Club, opposite The Quarry in Shrewsbury where fun was had by all.
In 2012 the Coracle World Championships raised over £20,000 for Shropshire Macmillan Cancer Support. This funding helped appoint a Support Manager based within the Cancer Unit at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital. The charity also continues to offer grants to Shropshire families to help them with basic needs such as fuel bills and car parking at hospital.
Rosconn are proud to have offered our support for such a worthy cause.
