Support Rainbows Hospice with your business at Nottingham’s 2020 Dragon Boat Challenge

The Nottingham Riverside Festival Dragon Boat Challenge will return to the Trent on Sunday 2nd August and businesses can now enter their teams into the event for a day of fun, team building, and to help raise money for Rainbows Hospice.

East Midlands Business Link is a proud sponsor of the event, organised by Gable Events, which will take place as part of the annual Riverside Festival. Up to 40 crews from all over the East Midlands are expected to battle it out over the 200m race course.

No previous experience is required to take part, and dragon boats, qualified helms and all racing equipment are provided and each crew is guaranteed a minimum of three races.

Teams and spectators also benefit from being part of one of the region’s largest family festivals with a bustling fair and vibrant mix of music, dance, crafts and food from around the world, staged by Nottingham City Council.

The Challenge’s official charity, Rainbows, is the only hospice providing vital care and support to babies, children and young adults with life-limiting illnesses across the East Midlands. Rainbows also looks after the wider families – mums and dads, brothers, sisters and grandparents – because life limiting illnesses affect everyone involved.

By signing up to the Dragon Boat Challenge, your crew will be able to raise vital funds for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People and make a difference to over 400 families.

Emily Wright, Corporate Partnership Fundraiser at Rainbows, said: “The Dragon Boat Challenge is an amazing event. With up to 50 companies competing for a number of prizes the day has a great atmosphere. More amazing than the event however is the generosity of the crews who take part. It is only through your support at events like this that we are able to help and care for those families who need it most.”

The top fundraisers for Rainbows will win the charity trophy plus the special prize of a premiere escape room experience at Escapologic.
