LEAH team in Dragon Boat

LEAH has secured a place at the Dragon Boat Race organised by Kingston Rotary Club for the 3rd time!

We’re looking for 20 people to join ‘Team LEAH’ to compete in races throughout the day. No experience is necessary and practically anyone can enter. Each race is made up of 12-16 people plus a drummer to beat time for the crew. (A qualified and experienced helmsperson from Dragon Boat Events Ltd. controls and steers the boat from a standing platform.)

Date: Sunday 16th July, 2017

Location: Canbury Gardens, located adjacent to the river off Lower Ham Road, Kingston KT2 5AU

Cost: There’s a £25 entrance fee per person which covers the Rotary Club’s costs in providing facilities, hiring the boats, qualified helms & staff and organising the event. Your place will be secured on receipt of the entrance fee and you will have the opportunity to take part in at least 2 races.

Fundraising: Could each participant please secure sponsorship of £75 minimum – there is no upper limit! We aim to raise as much as possible for LEAH. This is the link to our fundraising website.

Terms and conditions apply and places will be offered on a first come first served basis, so please let Sarah know by email asap if you’re interested in joining the team. We will also need plenty of support from spectators on the day, so please put the date in your diary.
