Doncaster Dragon Boat Challenge 2017

More than 90 employees, partners and children attended the Doncaster Dragon Boat Race on Saturday 15th July where we raised £700 for the Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.   

Drizzle, strong currents, beer, wine, beef burgers and fizzy drinks all combined to diminish the Olympian athletic prowess of the Pennine Paddlers.  Winning two of the three heats and perhaps would have won the third had they not veered off course somewhat to avoid a dolphin.  By the semi-finals, they were already a few pounds overweight, courtesy of the delicious home baked birthday cakes - this also being a celebration of 15 years of Pennine Stone -  so I wasn't a big surprise for them not to be amongst the fastest times..  This team is awesomely competitive though, and next year might be a different story…
