The Rotary Club of Doncaster St George’s has announced the final fundraising figure from the Dragonboat Race event at Lakeside in the summer.
Donations totalling £4,300 are being made to The Alzheimer’s Society, Rotary charities, the Eve Merton Dreams Trust and Help for Heroes.
A cheque for £3,600 was presented to the Alzheimer’s Society at the Doncaster Knights Rugby Club, Armthorpe Road, during a celebration dinner last night.
The money was raised by sponsorship of 23 teams from local companies and fundraisers, who raced against each other over a 200m course in Chinese Dragonboats, each with a team of 10 paddlers plus a drummer.
The winning crew was One Call Insurance, closely followed by The Dome and Dentons Dragon Slayers.
