Dragon Boat Racing Event

By January 9, 2017Events

What exactly is Dragon Boat Racing?

Well it sounds exciting, doesn’t it? That’s because it is! Dragon boating is a fun, team-building activity whereby teams of people board long, canoe-shaped boats and compete in races against each other. Now you may be wondering where dragons come into it; don’t worry, there’s no fire involved – it’s just because the boats are carved and painted to look like them!

WHH Charity is Releasing the Dragon!

WHH Charity has organised a spectacular dragon boat racing fundraiser this summer. We have everything in place – all we need now is some fierce competitors. This particular event is brilliant for businesses looking to take part in a team-building activity, but the invite is open to anyone, from members of the public to members of our own hospital staff. All that really matters is that you get involved and have fun!

And the best part? It’s all for a worthwhile cause. Forget the Chinese zodiac – 2017 is the Year of the Children’s Ward here at WHH Charity, which means that all of the proceeds from this event will go towards our Making Waves appeal, which is all about building a brand new outdoor play area for the young patients on our children’s ward. If you’d like to learn more about the appeal, click HERE for more information.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • When? 18th June 2017
  • Where? Manley Mere, Frodsham
  • Team size? Between 17 and 20 people

But what if I can’t gather that many people?
No problem – just gather as many as you can and we can put smaller groups together to form one team!

And what if I’ve never rowed before?
Don’t worry – everyone will be given full training on the day.

And even if you don’t fancy taking part in the race, there is plenty to see and do at Manley Mere, such as an adventure trail and restaurant.
