It was an outstanding day by many accounts. The weather was fantastic, both teams did well in the races and we exceeded the amount we raised for our chosen charities. We are pleased to announce that we have now received all of the donations for the Annual Dragon Boat Race from September 2018 and have raised £1786.00 in total (split between Cransley Hospice and Lakelands Hospice), which exceeds the previous year.
A sizeable amount was received from our various suppliers. Carlos Martin, Head of Supply Chain and Procurement, said: “I would like to thank our suppliers who supported our charity fund racing Dragon Boat Race event held at Wicksteed Park in September. Your generosity is very much appreciated by us and the Cransley and Lakelands charities who will really benefit from the funds raised.”
Thank you to everyone who donated and supported throughout the day and we hope the money makes a great difference to the charities involved. Let’s hope we can beat this in 2019 too!
