Crazy Jean’s Soapbox Race postponed until 2021
To ensure the safety and wellbeing of participating racers, charities, sponsors and spectators, and in light of the growing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone this year's Soapbox Race until June 2021.
We have had the full support of our partners and charities in moving this year’s race. Our two nominated causes, Hospice in the Weald and Nourish Community Foodbank, are joined by the West Kent Independent State School Partnership, our ambassadors Max Chilton, Rosemary Shrager and Tom Swift, and all the teams taking part, in backing the decision not to proceed this year.
West Kent College, who provided the chassis for the soapbox karts in years one and two, will continue their full commitment next year, and positive discussions with Tunbridge Wells Borough Council mean that all parties involved are in full agreement on how best to proceed, putting the welfare of the town first as our highest priority.
People who have bought tickets so far for this year's event will contacted as soon as possible and given the option to carry their tickets over to next year, convert them into donations which will be split between Hospice in the Weald and Nourish Community Foodbank or receive a refund.
We are privileged to work alongside such wonderful people, who have been so supportive in this difficult decision and we thank you all deeply for your support and understanding.
We are dedicated to making the Crazy Jean's Soapbox Race 2021 bigger and better for everyone than ever before!
