Dragon Boat Racing!

Dragon Boats

We joined forces with Seven Stories and First Class Supply to compete in the annual Dragon Boat Race.

Seven Stories, The National Centre for Children’s Books, swapped pages for paddles to raise essential funds to enhance the visitor experience for children with special educational needs and disabilities. A crew of 16 paddlers took part in the second-annual Dragon Boat race at Hetton Lyons Country Park on Sunday 31 July 2016.

We joined Seven Stories to brave the 250-metre course along with fellow corporate partners, First Class Supply.

Kate Edwards, Chief Executive at Seven Stories said: “I’m really excited to be joining our generous Dragon Boat sponsors, First Class Supply and Unwritten, along with the fantastic Seven Stories team to battle the waves towards the grand final. We hope that this exciting challenge will attract donations from our many supporters, helping us to raise funds to support our work with children and young people with special educational needs so that they are inspired to step into the wonderful world of stories at Seven Stories.”

Having worked with the team at Seven Stories for almost 10 years, we continue to support them in any way we can, which includes taking to the water in a Dragon Boat! We’re hugely proud to have such a wonderful and unique Centre in the region and to be part of the team responsible for marketing Seven Stories.

Between Seven Stories, Unwritten and First Class Supply, we managed to raise £688.38. Thank you to all who offered their support!
