Dragon race charity winners

Have your say

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.
