As Marcia mentioned in her wonderful blog last week, there’s a lot of excitement here at NCY Towers about the Dragon Boat Race. We’re sharpening our swords/oars in preparation for a night of dragon slaying/racing hosted by our friends at Docklands Sailing and Watersports. It will be a fantastic evening of food, music and competition, and we want you to be involved.
We hope to fill twenty boats with eleven people each, with a target of raising £40,000 towards NCY’s work with young people across London. This money will help us provide important services including youth clubs, training and sports activities for young people.
There are several ways you can get involved:
- Come and take part! Tickets for the Boat Race are £50, and it’s just £35 to come and watch from dry land and enjoy the barbecue. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place.
- Sponsor a young person – £100 will provide them with a place on a boat and give their fundraising a kickstart!
- Sponsor a whole boat! If you’re a company who would like to send a team to take charge of a whole dragon, then £2000 will enable you to send a team, as an excellent team-building challenge which benefits the whole community.*
- Make a donation in support of NCY! Visit our page on Just Giving
However you choose to take part, we hope that you will encourage your friends and family to join us to make it an unforgettable evening in support of our important work with young people all over London.
See you there!
