Rachel and Jen at the Soapbox Launch

The Tunbridge Wells Soapbox Race.

The Tunbridge Wells Soapbox Stars Race returned to Tunbridge Wells in Dunorlan Park and on June 24th, with Mental Health Resource is a Charity Partner! Handmade soapbox karts, each sponsored, manned and expertly 'pimped up' by each team, went head to head in hilarious Red Bull style time trials of a specially made downhill race track in the picturesque park. 

This great community and fundraising event was organised by Coco and her team at Chatty Hatter PR and The Big Chat who also supported Mental Health Resource with their kart this year.

Unfortunately, our kart didn't qualify for the finals but we are so happy to have taken part. In total, we raised just over £7000 on the day for our charity 

Thank you's.

We'd like to say a huge thank you to NFU Mutual for their large donation and for racing on our behalf and thank you to the following companies for sponsoring our kart on the day:

  • Runway Training
  • Pushkin Anqtiues
  • Digitom Video Production
  • A Plan Tunbridge Wells

But the biggest thanks goes to Coco for inviting us to be a charity of the year partner for this exciting, community event. We're so grateful and are looking forward to next year!

Thank you!
