Dragon Boat 2018

Congratulations to all our teams who took part in the 6th annual Dragon Boat Races on Sunday 3 June at Goldsworth Park Lake, Woking.

Sponsored by Trident Honda, the event saw 10 teams take to the water in brightly painted, dragon-headed boats on an extremely hot and blisteringly sunny day. The event provided a colourful spectacle for all our visitors during the day, who came to the lakeside to cheer on the rowers and to enjoy the family fun day activities on the bank too.

The worthy winners, Team Seymours from Seymours’ Estate Agents, crossed the lake in a very speedy 57.94 seconds. Second and third places were won by two teams from Natta Building Company, the ‘Average Team’ and the ‘Dream Team’. A special mention must go to all those rowers who wore man-made fibres in their fancy dress costumes in the face of extreme temperatures!  The Hospice Heroes team had great fun but came in 9th place, bowing to more co-ordinated challengers.

Thank you to all the competitors, the Goldsworth Park Community Association, Woking Borough Council and the Dianthus Building, Trident Honda, Jay Shah and of course all our hospice volunteers and staff for their support of our event.

Sponsorship money is still coming in so please watch this space to find out how much we raised to support our hospice.
