Ince Metcalfes Headline Sponsors of Portishead Raft Race 2019

July 08, 2019

Our crew have returned safely from the Portishead Raft Race 2019, where Ince Metcalfes were the headline sponsors.  The event attracted approximately 4,000 visitors and raised over £12,000 for local charities and community groups.

Our Flinstones themed raft sailed across the finishing line with the help of our hardworking crew whilst Partner & Head of Family Law, Kerry Graham and Managing Associate Phil Lawrence had the hard task of judging the edible boat regatta in front of 50 or so children and parents that had painstakingly hand-carved melons, peppers and marrows into floating (and not so buoyant) fully edible boats, animals and ships, as well as awarding the winning rafts their trophies.

The Ince Metcalfes' marquee offered the crowds a very popular hook a duck, name the teddy and charity raffle as well as free biscuit decorating and colouring competitions for children. Thank you to everyone that visited our marquee and helped us raise funds for local charities.
