Bristol52 Charity Dragon Boat Race

Sorry :(

This project was unsuccessful

Let's get a Bristol52 boat in the Dragon Boat Race in September and raise money for another great charity

On 14th September this year the annual Dragon Boat Race will take place in Baltic Wharf - and I want Bristol52 to take part!

Each Chinese-style Dragon Boat consists of 16 paddlers and a drummer. They race other Dragon Boats over a 250-metre course.

Crews do not need to be super fit or skilled to take part. All that's required is teamwork and a good sense of fun!

The racing is run by leading events company Dragon Boat Events Ltd who provide the boats, helms, safety equipment, buoyancy aids and rescue boats.


Entering a non-Sue Ryder charity supporting team into the day costs £375 and a commitment for each crew member to raise at least £100.

The charity the Bristol52 boat will support hasn't been decided yet, but as we did for #FatherBristmas, a vote will be held to find the local cause we want to help.


By supporting this Fundsurfer and pledging money you are basically "buying" your place on the boat.
