Press Release from last year’s event:

Industry teams have “oar some’ fun in the sun for charity (Dragon Boat Race 2022)

The heat was most definitely on as Agents Giving organised an adrenaline-pumping Dragon Boat race sponsored by HomeLet and LetAlliance at Fairlop Waters Country Park in Ilford, Essex.

This was the ultimate team event and water spots activity with agents and suppliers alike coming together for fast racing, fundraising, and family fun, with all teams rowing 250m in each of three heats in a bid to reach the final race.  The day was exciting and challenging with everyone having the best time for charity.

The racing teams included Foxtons, Kerfuffle, Thomas Morris, TDS, Acaboom, The Depositary, Loop Software, Drivers & Norris, J P Gardner & Associates, Simply Conveyancing, Genmar, Caplen Estates, National Home Move, Boomin and Propertymark.

The teams as you would expect were highly competitive, many in fancy dress for the occasion and the level of rowing was impressive and intense.  The sun shone and a fun day was had by all involved out on the lake rowing and enjoying the lakeside views with picnics, refreshments, and a lot of laughs.

David Newnes, Agents Giving Chairman comments; “We all enjoyed a fabulous day dragon boat racing and could not have asked for a better day, the sun came out and so did all our wonderful supporters.  We would like to thank everyone who took part to help make this such an amazing event”.

Teams rowed in the heats to compete in the grand final which consisted of Thomas Morris, Caplen Estates, Drivers and Norris and Acaboom to see the winners Caplen Estates coming in with a winning race time of 01.01.53, followed by Thomas Morris, Drivers & Norris and Acaboom.  Over £22,000 was raised from the day’s activities.

Everyone involved is now looking forward with excitement to next year’s event and many already have a race plan in place!
