R.F. Blount team comes 4th in 2016 Dragon Boat Race

We would like to thank everybody involved in the 2016 running of the Nene Valley Dragonboat Race, held by the Rotary Club raising funds for Lakelands Daycare and Cransley Hospice.

The R.F. Blount team, ‘The Mutineers’, fought hard all day putting in some seriously fast times. The time posted in the semi-final was actually faster than any times set in the final which would have given them the win. The team worked really well together, and with a few small improvements are confident they can take the top spot next year, after coming close the past 3 years.

The main reason of course was to raise money for Cransley Hospice and Lakelands Daycare. The entire staff have been working hard to collect sponsorship’s, with a final tally being counted as we speak. The event has raised over £100,000 since the start of the event six years ago, and we hope to add as much as we can to the tally.
