The organisers of the Dragon Boat racing at Wicksteed Park on Sunday (September 4) say they’re hoping it has raised a record amount.
The race - run by five rotary clubs and won by A1 Fitness for the second year running - attracted a record 46 teams.
And while the fundraising counting has not yet been completed, chairman of the Nene Valley Dragons organising committee Alan Armson says they’re hoping to have raised £30,000.
He said: “For the last three years we’ve raised about £25,000 but this was the most teams we’ve ever had so we’re hoping to have raised £30,000.
“That will go primarily to Lakelands, Cransley Hospice and the rotary clubs to give out to their charities.
“It was a great day with A1 Fitness from Kettering winning for the second year running and the Oarlympic champions from Matalan (Corby) coming second.”
A mention must go to the five rotary clubs - Kettering, Kettering Huxloe, Corby Phoenix, Rushden and Rushden Chichele - who helped to organise the event.
