Dragon Boat Racing 2017

On the 9th of September 3 teams made up of 60 Tree of Hope supporters all ventured down to Bewl Water, Lamberhurst for the annual FUNrasiers Dragon Boat Racing Festival.

Team Infinity Group ‘To Infinity and Beyond’, suitably dressed as Toys Story Characters joined Marks and Spencer  Tunbridge Wells ‘Team Sparks’ (totally full of sparkle) and Tree of Hope’s very own Hawaiian team for the Dragon Boat Challenge. With nearly 60 other teams entered, each team completed three races for a chance to get into the final.

The day was full of fun, sun (and a bit of rain towards the end. It wouldn’t be Britain without it!) a very extensive bake sale, home made by all our lovely rowers and a tombola (prizes kindly donated by our avid supports at M&S).

Unfortunately this year was not a winning year, despite every paddling effort from everyone we did not make it to the final however, all teams were respectably placed. See the scores below

Tree of Hope, Hawaii-  34th

Team Sparks- 37th

To Infinity and Beyond- 52nd
