A team of dragon boaters from Worcestershire’s largest social landlord have raised almost £700 for a charity which supports 1 in 350 people in the UK.
The money was raised when the 40-strong team took to the water as part of Worcester’s Dragon Boat Race Regatta. The event, which took place on Sunday 1 July, has been held every year for more than 25 years on the River Severn in Worcester.
The decision to raise money for Parkinson’s UK came after a Fortis employee – and dragon boat racer – Andrew Warner, was diagnosed with the condition in April this year. Andrew said: “Taking part in the dragon boat race earlier this month was such fabulous fun! What made it even more special is that we raised money for a charity that is very close to my heart. Thanks to all who made this happen and for all the donations!”
