Sunday the 28th October will see the Overwater Marina engineering team paddling for pounds as they attempt a charity row from the Marina, near Audlem, to Nantwich basin and back. Peeky's Blinders, named in honour of workshop manager Simon Peek, have decided to re-launch their raft 'Broke n down' to raise funds for the Royal National Lifeboat Institute with this sponsored event.
Please support this worthy cause by sponsoring the team, forms are available in the marina reception, and by joining us to wave the boys off from the slipway at 8am.
If they successfully stay afloat on this 10-mile round trip, the oar'some raft will then be available for sale; to make yet more funds for the charity. After winning best-dressed raft at the Marina's recent RNLI festival: Simon, Mark and Ralph of Overwater Narrowboat Services have decided to offer their raft, possibly the smallest narrowboat on the canal network, to the highest bidder. Call the office on 01270 812677 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an offer.
Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th October also sees the annual sale of Christmas cards and gifts by the RNLI outside the marina reception.
