Dragon Boat Teams Raise £3k for Childrens Hospice

By Amanda | 24-10-2019

And win another trophy!

Vicky Stackhouse from Forget me Not Children's Hospice came in to present our two Dragon Boat teams with yet another trophy this week, this time for raising the most money from the Dragon Boat event. The new trophy was added to the existing one that Huddersfield Indians received for the best fancy dress on the day.

In total, our teams raised £3013, about £1500 each although there is still some contention about which of the teams raised the most between them. I daresay that the sum raised may increase as the internal competition heats up and more funds are added in the bid to claim the winners title, but then that just means more money towards children and families in Yorkshire. So be it. See you all again next year, when we will again be taking part in this fabulous fun day. on Saturday 19th September.

Many thanks to everyone who sponsored our rowers and to the following companies and individuals who donated to the cause. Every penny of the funds you have given will be used to help children with life threatening illnesses and their immediate families. The hospice is a truly amazing place, providing critical support in tragic circumstances. As a family run company, children and families are close to our heart and our values and we are delighted that so many of you got behind us on this one.
