Clinical staff from the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield are to go head-to-head for the second year running in a race in which giant boats take to the water at Rother Valley Country Park.

The Dragon Boat race will be on September 13, and more than 20 teams will be paddling 40-foot boats along the park’s lake to raise money for good causes. The first hospital group will be made up of physicians from the community and geriatrics department, along with haematologists and respiratory experts, while staff from the surgical services department will make up the second team.

Proceeds from their efforts will go to the Sheffield Hospitals Charity.
