Phase Worldwide, which is working in Nepal, is holding a dragon boat challenge on Manvers Lake at Wath upon Dearne and is inviting teams to apply.

More than 30 crews have already signed up to race in 30ft long Chinese dragon boats on a 200 metre course.

Teams need to be made up of 10 paddlers, a drummer for the front of the boat and someone to steer at the tail.

Marie Cragg, trustee of Phase, said: “The race takes place on July 1 so there is still plenty of time to raise a team and join in the fun. No experience is required, just plenty of team spirit.”
