Fun on the water results in £2,000 donation

Posted on January 20, 2020

Staff at Loddon-based company Continental Products took to the water to have some fun and in the process raised £2,000 for Great Yarmouth-based charity Centre 81.  The company entered two crews in the annual dragon boat festival at Oulton Broad. They called one boat Dragon Our Heels and the other Dragon Behind but there was no holding them when it came to fundraising.

“We were really pleased with the amount raised in sponsorship and are delighted to be able to support this fantastic charity,” said organiser Rebecca Carver. She and colleague Michelle Hoare met Centre 81 members and presented them not only with a cheque but also with one of the dragon-shaped trophies they won.

Diana Staines, Centre 81 chief executive, said: “This is amazing I saw the crews in action at the festival and they had a huge amount of fun. On behalf of our members, staff and volunteers I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Continental Products for raising such a brilliant sum.”
