How the 2012 raft was built
Some of previous charity work
Matlock Raft Race began in the early 1960s to raise cash for the RNLI, and every Boxing Day, craft begin the race over a four-mile course along the River Derwent. The rafts are an assortment of home-made vessels, some made for racing and others for comic effect with their crew in appropriate fancy dress. It is usual for some to sink or disintegrate long before the finish, particularly near the hazard of the weir by Masson Mill.
Spectators get a good view from most of the river bank – popular spots are Matlock Bridge and Masson Mill. Parking is freely available at Cromford Meadows near the finish. Expect a crowd of thousands.
This year we attended and collected the huge sum of £3150 in sponsorship.
