On 2nd May 2019, the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, played host to the LRWA’s first Charity Dragon Boat Regatta. Open to everyone in the roofing and waterproofing industry, the event attracted 110 people, including contractors and manufacturers from across the UK.
The regatta was launched to raise vital funds for the LRWA’s nominated charity, Mind. Thanks to the efforts of all those involved, more than £1,400 has been raised so far, but with donations still coming in, this figure is set to rise even further.
Following some impressive displays of paddle power, Proteus Spartans (Proteus Waterproofing) emerged victorious taking the gold medal. Team Popeye (London Seamless Flat Roofing) picked up silver and Moy Story (Moy Materials) went home with the bronze medal.
