30 teams competed in the 4th Annual Capital Dragon Boat Race event on 11th June 2015, raising funds for Kids Company and Toyhouse.
Just over 400 people attended the day and were kept entertained by a live band, a Chinese Lion Dance and Laser Shooting. Spectators were also able to enjoy a BBQ in the sun as they watched the Berkeley Homes North East London boat "Pier Pressure" come 3rd, just behind Brenbar Electrical and Stanmore. In total, £53,250 was raised from the event this year, topping the fundraising total from last year.
"In my opinion, what makes the Dragon Boat Race such a great event is that it attracts everyone from across the industry. It is open to all and sees lawyers, agents and contractors all up against each other. The event is about team work and is lots of fun whilst still raising money for a fantastic charity. It has become hugely successful across the last four years and has now become NEL's flagship event." Piers Clanford, Managing Director for Berkeley Homes North East London.
