It raised £3,845 as a result of the event on May 17, which saw 20 teams take part.

A total of £3845 was handed over to the Lake District Calvert Trust by sponsors Progression Solicitors and Low Wood Bay Hotel.

Progression Solicitors spokesman Anthony Smith from said “This is exactly the kind of community event we love to support, to see so many people having fun raising money for charity on the day was fantastic. Nearly four thousand pounds for the Calvert Trust from a single day of cardboard boat racing is a massive achievement.”

Caterkwik for donated £1000 and Lake District Farmers £1310. These one off donations were backed up with race entry fees and a raffle. The funds raised will be specifically used for purchasing specialist riding hats and as a bursary for people with learning disabilities thereby removing any financial barriers preventing them from staying at the Calvert Trust.

Event organiser Ben Berry said: “We couldn’t have had a better day, with the fantastic weather, great BBQ and bar, fly boarding display, water canons and cardboard boats – who could ask for more fun? We even had a bouncy castle and face painting for the kids.”
