Dragon Boat fund raiser from Wirquin
An enthusiastic team from Wirquin has raised funds for Sheffield Children's Hospital and Doncaster Rotary Club, by taking part in a Dragon Boat Race.
The event, which has now run for nine consecutive years, was the St George's Dragon Boat Challenge held at Lakeside, Doncaster in July. The team of 10 paddlers and one drummer from Wirquin competed in a 30-foot Dragon Boat and had to complete the 250m course twice.
The fastest nine teams then battled it out in the semi-finals and the top three in the final. Denton Nicholls was the winner and crowned the Dragon Boat Challenge Champion of 2018.
Wirquin has taken part in the fun event for the past five years and those involved this time around - competing in team 'Wirqueens and Kings' - came 13th place out of 24 and raised over £400 for charity. A great day was had by all.
Wirquin is a family run, leading European sanitary equipment manufacturer offering the Celmac and Macdee brands in the UK. The company provides installers with a wide range of innovatively designed products including toilet seats, flushing mechanisms, frames, cisterns, wastes, connectors and wetroom products.
