Roar with the Dragons for St. Rocco’s!
This year’s St. Rocco’s Dragon Boat Race takes place on Sunday 28th July at Warrington Rowing Club. The event is always well supported and the competitive spirit of the teams is always high. Last year’s final was a photo finish with the Mighty Loaders just pipping the teams from Walker Begley, Zachary Daniels and Dainty’s Dragons to the post with less than a second between them.
As well as being a great team building opportunity, it’s always a great day out with the teams bringing family and friends to cheer them on. Last year there were teams from all aspects of Warrington life including businesses, a recruitment consultant, retailers, accountants and a pub all being represented. Teams consist of twenty people with sixteen rowing at any one time and a drummer. Entry for the event is £400 and each team is asked to raise £1000 between them to help St. Rocco’s staff to continue to look after those in the Warrington community who need their care.
As a local charity, St. Rocco’s relies on the generosity of the community to raise over 78% of the £3.6 million a year it costs to keep its doors open.
There’s still time to sign up a team by contacting Community Fundraiser Nicola Henshaw on 01925 575780 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
