ICC Team raising money for Martin House at the Dragon Boat Race

ICC Team Boat Race 2018

The guys at ICC took part in the Dragon Boat Race on 20th May in Roundhay, Leeds again this year in aid of Martin House.

Although capsizing may have prevented them from winning, the event was a huge amount of fun and they did very well to get to the semi finals!  Well done everyone – it was a fantastic effort.

The Martin House Dragon Boat Race

It was the 11th year of the Dragon boat race – it’s a unique team-building or corporate event which helps to raise needed funds to support hundreds of children and young people across Yorkshire.

How to enter

To enter all you need is a team of between 8-10 paddlers and a drummer to keep the rhythm – the boat and life jackets are provided.  Each team takes part in a minimum 3 races – the fastest team will go through to the semi final.

Entertainment on the day

Refreshments and many activities are available through the day by the lake for the whole family.

For more information about this annual fundraiser event, entry fees, sponsorship and how to enter – take a look at the Leeds Inspired website.
