Paddles up for Lane 6!

Webroster boldly entered a team in the Peterborough Dragon Boat race for the very first time.  Our brave team took part in this years’ Peterborough Dragon Boat Race on 14th June 2014 at Peterborough Rowing Club, Thorpe Meadows. The race was to raise money for EACH (East Anglia Children’s Hospices) who provide care and support for life-threatened children and their families across East Anglia either in the community, in their homes or in one of three hospices across the region.Racing for the line

Our team, ‘Lane 6’, consisted of Nigel, James, Duncan, Graham, Rags, Roy and Ian assisted and cheered on by various colleagues, family and friends.Lane 6 warming up

‘Lane 6’ made it all the way to the semi-finals just missing out on a place in the finals by a fraction of a second and coming 4th out of 26 teams overall.  We came second in our heats and to the surprise of the team we won three of the races and nobody got wet!Waiting for the start

The team had a fantastic day out and are already looking forward to next year with the aim of at least making it into the finals! There is still time to donate to EACH through the Just Giving page, all the money raised so far has already been donated to East Anglia Children’s hospice. EACH logo
