Last week the Ringrose Law team, along with Lincoln BIG, presented cheques for over £2,000 to St Barnabas Hospice and The Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance, the two nominated charities from the Lincoln Dragon Boat Race 2016.

In total the event raised nearly £3,000 through sponsorship, online donations and on the day itself, making the event a fantastic success for both local charities.

The Lincoln Dragon Boat Race, held earlier this year, was the first boat race the Brayford Waterfront has hosted for many years. Ringrose Law Solicitors, along with Lincoln BIG and supporting partners decided to take the plunge and re-introduce the event back to the City’s event calendar earlier this year. The day was a huge success with hundreds of spectators throughout the day watching the eight local teams competing to be crowned the 2016 Dragon Boat Champion.

The prestigious title was won by APSS Group, one of the local firms competing on the day, other local firms competing included Delta-Simons Environmental Consultants, The University of Lincoln, Lambert Smith Hampton, Ruddocks, Duncan & Toplis, Simons Group and Ringrose Law.

Michael Armstrong, Events & Promotions Manager at Lincoln BIG Commented;

“The Dragon Boat Race bought great excitement to one of the most beautiful parts of the city and attracted scores of visitors. We hope this will become an annual feature of the city’s events calendar and continue to grow year on year.”

Ringrose Law hope the event will become an annual event for the City and would like to welcome more teams to enter for 2017.

Alex Bennett, Marketing Manager commented;

“The day was a great success, we had lots of support on the day and it was a lot of fun for the competing teams. We were really pleased to raise money for the local charities and hope to make 2017 a bigger and better event.”
