The iconic Lincoln Dragon Boat Festival, which takes place on 18th June on the Brayford Waterfront will this year be raising money in aid of LIVES.

Several local firms across the region, including the reigning champions, Belton Construction, have already entered crews in what promises to be the biggest Dragon Boat Festival to date in Lincoln.

There is still plenty of time to raise a team and join in the fun! So, get your team of up to 10 paddlers, plus a drummer, together and battle it out in ornate 30 foot Chinese dragon boats over a 200m course along the Brayford Waterfront. The event promises to be colourful and great fun, no previous experience is required, just plenty of team spirit!

The teams will be encouraged to raise money for LIVES through sponsorship, raising funds for a life-saving Lincolnshire charity.

Tiffany Allen Fundraising Manager from LIVES; said “We are delighted to have received such an excellent response to our call for crews from local businesses across the region. The Dragon Boat Race promises to be a great day out and will entice some healthy competition between local businesses in order to raise these vital funds to keep our Emergency Responders on the road and continue saving lives in Lincolnshire.”
